It’s astounding to see the marked prices of granolas in the grocery stores. Sure, they are fine, perhaps organic, but geez, $8 for a store-bought medium-size bag is a bit ridiculous. Collecting whole ingredients will create abundant amounts of fresh, homemade granolas right at home. Places like Costco with their bulk inventories are perfect to collect nuts, oats, maple syrup, and more. As for storing, read the post on how to purchase, save, and organize spices and bulk items!

Now back to this gem of a recipe: homemade granola on top of yogurt is deeply comforting. Roasted nuts add so much depth and crunch. Add some berries, or lemon curd, an extra drizzle of honey, and you have a killer yogurt parfait. Enjoy your morning bliss!

  • 5 cups Old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup Coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup Raw almonds
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Almond extract
  • 1 cup Maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt

  • In a separate bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, syrup, vanilla & almond extract, cinnamon, and salt. Toss well and pour over the oats-almond mix, and coat evenly.
