Homemade Granola



I am a big chip eater, it is definitely my down fall
I am that girl at parties that sits right in front of the chip bowl and just goes to town.
Anyways... we haven't been buying chips for the house recently because, supposedly, its unhealthy.
However, I need something crunchy to chew on for a snack. 
I just can't stop having that in my life, I need something.
So we found a great healthy alternative... 
homemade granola!


First get your ingredients together:
4 cups oats
2 cups shredded coconut
2 cups sliced almonds
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup honey
A variety of your favorite fruits, we went with banana chips, cranberries, raisins and apricots


Preheat your oven on 350
Mix your oats, coconut, almonds in one bowl
Mix your oil and honey in another bowl
Combine bowls and spread on baking pan


Place in oven for about 30 minutes
If you have a convection oven with the setting on convection bake, then only back for about 15-20
( basically when the granola is golden brown, take it out)


Let your granola cool, then add your toppings and mix!
 In the end you have and affordable, healthy snack

Yummy!
