A simple homemade granola recipe is simple and delicious. This granola is made with gluten-free oats, coconut oil, and naturally sweetened with honey (or maple syrup). It's gluten and dairy-free with a vegan option! Homemade granola is a great weekday breakfast with milk or yogurt, topped with fresh fruit! This recipe yields about 5 cups granola, depending on what add-ins you choose.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats and sea salt.
In another bowl, combine the honey and oil.
Add the honey and oil to the oat mixture and stir well.
Spread the oat mixture on the prepared baking sheet.
Check the granola after about 15 minutes. Toss the granola. Add nuts at this point if you choose. You can also add the nuts after the granola has finished baking.
Once the granola is done, the edges are golden, take it out of the oven and let it cool.
You can add all sorts of delicious things to this basic granola recipe: dried fruits, raisins, nuts, chocolate chips, etc...
