Seriously… Granola in general is so easy to make, I often wonder why I sometimes fall for the “easy and convenient option” and find myself buying some of the ready-made stuff at the store.

After all, homemade IS so much better, not only for your taste buds, but also for your body; indeed, by making your own, you get to control exactly what goes into your morning cereal! No canola oil or refined sugar for me, thank you very much!

This particular Pumpkin and Hemp Seed variety even happens to be gluten free! Note that I chose to use rolled barley flakes instead of the usual rolled oats, because I find them to be a tad crunchier. However, if you couldn’t get your hand on them, you could just as well go with the more traditional rolled oats. Just be sure to use the regular flakes, NOT the quick cooking stuff!

Even at that, this granola is so crazy crunchy and deliciously sweet, you’ll want to sprinkle some on top of everything! Try a handful over yogurt, ice cream, fruit salad, or even over your morning oatmeal!

Oh yeah! You’ll thank me for that…

To start, preheat your oven to 325°F. Then, in a large mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients and toss really well.

Grab a small saucepan and, in it, combine all your wet ingredients; heat that over medium heat until the coconut oil is completely melted and then pour it right over your reserved mixed cereal.

Give everything a delicate stir until all the ingredients are evenly coated.

And just like that, all the work is pretty much behind you now… Told you it was easy, didn’t I?

All that’s left to do now is dump your raw granola onto a large baking sheet and spread it into an even layer. No need to even line that baking sheet!

Bake your granola for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until it becomes beautifully golden brown and deliciously fragrant.

When I say deliciously, I really mean deliciously… me says you’re probably want to be making granola regularly, if only to enjoy its aroma while it bakes!

Once it’s baked to your liking, remove the cereal from the oven and allow it to cool completely in the pan, then transfer it to an airtight container; store at room temperature for up to a few months.

Yeah… like it’s ever gonna last that long!
