Almond Granola

I've been craving cereal lately. A lot. I'm sometimes blown away at how much shitty processed sugary cereal I used to eat, but all I've been wanting lately is a big bowl of Lucky Charms.

Then I realized that homemade granola IS CEREAL. And it makes your house smell amazing! And you can put whatever you want in it.  I modified this recipe to create my slightly healthier version. This satisfied my craving big time. 

 

 

Almond Granola

  • 3 cups Kamut flakes (I like these way more than oats. They're crunchy and nutty.)

  • 1 cup blanched slivered almonds

  • Big handful of  dried coconut

  • Bigger handful of unsalted sunflower seeds

  • Spoonful ground flax

  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons agave (It was in my cupboard. I'd prefer maple syrup.)

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil. Maybe even a bit less than this. Vegetable oil is cool too.

  • 2 tablespoons hot water

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Whatever else you want. Nuts, seeds, dried fruit, etc., you get it.

1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C)

2. Mix kamut flakes, almonds, coconut, sunflower seeds, flax in your biggest bowl.

3. Mix coconut oil with hot water in a medium-size bowl. Whisk with a fork until coconut oil is liquid. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk.

4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix well.

5. Lay out evenly on a coupla' trays in the oven for 1 Hour and 15 minutes. I used aluminum foil, but you could just make sure your pan is oiled up. Now, Your house will smell divine.

6. Serve with nut milk, greek yogurt, or whatever. Delicious!

 

Look how pinteresty my breaky looked!
