Healthy Granola

This delicious and healthy granola recipe is also nutritious since it’s made with whole grains, unrefined oil, and naturally sweetened with real maple syrup.

Healthy Granola

I make a batch of homemade granola every couple of weeks because my family eats it so often. My son enjoys eating it with milk like cereal while my daughter, husband, and I prefer eating it with Greek yogurt. I stumbled upon the best healthy granola recipe on Gimme Some Oven and thought it sounded great since I had a bag of chia seeds that needed to be used. This tasty almond coconut granola was easy to make, smelled amazing while baking, and we all think it’s delicious.
