THE BEST BULK BIN GRANOLA

This homemade granola uses all dry goods from the bulk and spice section, collected in my reusable dry goods bags! Enjoy this crunchy, wholesome, comforting goodness in your low impact breakfast (or lunch or dinner, really!)

PREP TIME 10 minutes
COOK TIME 35 minutes
TOTAL TIME 45 minutes
SERVINGS 4 (1/2 cup ish)

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cup oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped nuts, I used pecans
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbps almond butter

TO-DO'S

  1. Preheat your oven to 325° F.

  2. Mix all dry goods in a large bowl (oats, coconut, flax seeds, nuts, cinnamon, salt.)

  3. On the stove over low heat combine coconut oil, maple syrup, and almond butter stirring often until mixed.

  4. Slowly add wet mixture to dry, stir in until all ingredients are coated evenly.

  5. Spread mixture onto a large baking sheet and flatten down evenly.

  6. Place sheet middle of oven and bake for 20 minutes, then rotate pan and bake an additional 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  7. Remove from oven and let cool at least 20 minutes. The cooling process helps the granola create clumps.

  8. Optional: Once cool stir in golden raisins and serve with homemade almond milk and fruit. 

NOTES

* I like to get a little wild with the cinnamon here – I've gotten great results using up to 3 tablespoons!

You can use a cookie scraper or wooden spatula to get this off of the baking sheet and avoid making excess waste with parchment paper.

* Keep in an airtight container (repurposed glass jars work great) for 2 - 3 weeks.
