Make your morning something special with this oh-so-delicious Super Seedy Coconut Oil Granola. It is jam-packed full of nuts and seeds and is naturally sweetened with maple syrup and some coconut sugar. Store in an airtight container, or if you make too much (there is no such thing as too much granola) then store in the freezer and just pull it out when you need it.
I just love making my own granola, and being in control of the ingredients going into my body first thing in the morning. The kiddos love helping as well, and it always makes for a fun (and sometimes messy) afternoon activity. Getting them involved ensures they will request little granola parfaits for breakfast the rest of the week, which in turn means no backing and forthing with questions about who wants what and who is going to eat what....if you have kids you know what I mean.
You can see my love for homemade granola in all these other fantastic (and well-tested) granola recipes:
- Super Crunchy Cardamom and Cashew Granola
- Super Easy Homemade Granola with Macadamia and Coconut Oil
- Coconut and Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola
- Pumpkin Spice Granola
Super Seedy Coconut Oil Granola is easy to put together, jam-packed with nuts and seeds and coconut oil and it is naturally sweetened to boot. It pairs beautifully with some whole milk (dairy or non dairy - you do you), with some yogurt in a parfait, or as a crumb topping on some baked or poached fruit. It also tastes delicious eaten in handfuls straight from the baking dish....
I love hearing from you, so if you try out my super seedy coconut oil granola then be sure to pop back and leave a comment to let me know what you think. Happy Eating.
