Fitness friday #7 | Homemade granola

Hey guys! Im back with another fitness friday post because I was clearly slipping in February and I thought that this would be a cool recipe to share and easy to make for everyone. Since I dont really like eating greek yogurt without granola and my Trader Joes was out of the kind that I liked I decided to make some.

Its super easy, the ingredients are affordable and it takes about 15-20min (depending on the amount your making) to bake.  Heres what you need:

1. 1 to 1 1/2 cup Rolled oats - I got mine from target but any brand works
2. Nuts whole or sliced
3. 1/4 cup Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
4. 1/4 to 1/2 cup Maple Syrup (depending on amount of mixture)
5. Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl mix together dry ingredients (ie: oats, nuts and fruit.) Slowly add in the coconut oil and maple syrup making sure the mixture is coated. Add cinnamon on top and stir in.  Pour the mixture on to a cookie sheet and bake for 15- 20 mins. Let cool for 1 minute. Then enjoy your granola in whatever you want to add it in :)

I added dried cranberries and some vanilla extract at the last minute to my granola mix.

Yummy in my tummy!! lol Try it out and let me know what you think!! What ingredients would you add to your granola mix?

Hugs and Love :)
