Healthy Holiday Granola

I love making homemade granola! Not only is it cost efficient, but it’s super easy. I also like to make my own because I get to control what ingredients I use! Many store-bought brands appear healthy, but are actually loaded with excess sugars and oils! So do your body a favor and try making your own! Granola not only makes for a tasty breakfast, but also makes for a great gift for friends and family. So, without further ado, here is my outrageously delicious recipe for Healthy Holiday Granola!

Ingredients:
+ 2 cups old fashioned oats
+ 1/2 cup of pecans halves
+ 1/3 cup of Craisins
+ 2 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup
+ 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
+ 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
+ a few dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg

Directions:
+ Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
+ Place all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
+ Spread the granola evenly over a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until crispy.
+ Remove from oven and allow to cool for ten minutes. Enjoy!
