Honey Nut Granola

As I am still practicing a clean eating "lifestyle" around here; I looked into other breakfast ideas as I have eaten my fill of baked cinnamon apple walnut oatmeal and banana oatmeal muffins for awhile.  Enter this honey nut granola.  It's perfect as a topping for yogurt or simply eaten with almond milk.  Making it at home guarantees that there are no processed ingredients being added and it's really easy to put together as well.

Honey Nut Granola
slightly adapted from AllRecipes
makes 5 cups

Ingredients: 4 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup of sunflower seeds
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 300 degrees
In a large bowl, stir together the oats, nuts, and cinnamon
Mix together the oil, honey, and extract.  Add wet mixture to the dry mixture.  Mix well.
Spread the mixture onto two un-greased baking sheets.
Bake for a total of 20 minutes, stirring the mixture every 5 minutes
Remove from the oven and let cool on a separate sheet.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.
