Store-bought granola is often loaded with sugar, but this homemade granola recipe uses low-glycemic sweeteners and is high in protein. You can feel good about starting your day with this delicious cereal. It's great mixed with yogurt and fresh berries!

Ingredients:

Basic recipe:

4 cups rolled oats (can use certified gluten-free oats)

3 Tablespoons chia seeds (I use the Qia blend of chia, buckwheat and hemp seeds)

1/4 cup coconut palm sugar

1/4 cup agave nectar

1/4 cup coconut oil

2 Tablespoons almond butter

 

Options:

Chopped pecans

Pepitas

Unsweetened coconut flakes

Raisins

Dried cherries

Instructions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Spread mixture evenly onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 40 minutes, stir the mixture and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

 

Allow the granola to cool completely before transferring it to an airtight container.
