I woke up this morning 1. determined to finish this knitted denim top so I can wear it out tonight and 2. CRAVING granola for some mysterious reason.

I whipped up this quick batch of Easy 5 Ingredient Granola with what I had on hand and it turned out great, so I thought I’d share the recipe. Gluten-free and lower in sugar than most granola, if you think about those things. Substitutions to veganize are in parentheses. Consider this recipe a base and feel free to add nuts or dried fruit.

You’ll need:

  • 1/4 C Ghee (or coconut oil)
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup, honey or a combo of both
  • 2 tbsp nut butter, I used peanut
  • 2 C rolled oats
  • a dash of cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 and grease a large baking sheet with a small amount of ghee (or coconut oil) or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a small sauce pot combine everything but the rolled oats and cinnamon and stir over low heat until melted.
  3. Add melted ingredients to 2 cups of rolled oats in a medium sized bowl and stir until the oats are coated.
  4. Spoon coated oats onto the baking sheet and spread into a relatively even layer.
  5. sprinkle with cinnamon.
  6.  Bake at 325 for 15 minutes, then remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully stir with a wooden spoon.
  7. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool. Transfer to a large jar or Tupperware.
