Strawberry Walnut Granola

Updated: Nov 2, 2019

I love making my own granola. I feel like it sounds intimidating... but seriously, so easy, cheaper & healthier & WAY more tastier.... so I guess I have a lot of reasons :) I started making my own granola when I felt like every one I looked at had SO much added sugar or things I was not a fan. So here we have it! My strawberry walnut granola... it is perfect! Check it out below!


Strawberry Walnut Granola


Ingredients:

-4 cups old fashioned rolled oats

-1 cup shredded coconut

-1 cup raw walnuts

-1 tbl cinnamon

-2 tsp maca powder

-1 cup chopped pecans

-1 1/2 tsp Pink Himalayan salt

-1/4 cup coconut sugar + more to sprinkle on the top when flipping it

-1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil

-1/2 cup honey

-1/2 cup maple syrup

-1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

-1/2 tsp almond extract

-1 cup freeze dried unsweetened strawberries

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place wax paper a baking sheet or use a Silpat--- we used a Silpat and that worked great. You need to be able to check on it every 5/10 minutes to move it around and make sure it doesn't burn. You will do this for 20-30 minutes depending how your oven is. You can tell it is done if the color all around is golden brown! I can't stress enough to keep an eye on it :)



Directions:

-Add all the dry ingredients together in one bowl. Whisk together all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl


-Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix it together thoroughly so the oats are well covered. Then spread the mixture evenly onto the sheet & sprinkle a pinch more salt over the mixture & coconut sugar


-Watch for 20-30 minutes, moving it around every 10 minutes at first, than around every 5 when it starts to get brown. Each time I take it out to move it around I sprinkle a bit more coconut sugar right on the top after it has been moved around and before I pop it back in ( this helps with the clusters)


-After it is done, let it cool fully until you put it into the container. Letting it cool that way, makes the perfect crunch! NOW ADD IN THE FREEZE DRIED STRAWBERRIES. Dice up into bite sized pieces & pour into the bowl before putting in container so you can mix it throughly. You do not want to add it before you put it in the oven or it will burn fully.


-Store in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze portions if you'd like
