How To Make Healthy Nutty Granola
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Pour contents evenly onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring twice throughout baking process to ensure granola does not burn.
Remove from the oven and let cool. Store in airtight containers for up to 3 months.
- To keep this granola as healthy as possible, I left out artificial sweeteners but please feel free to swap out the nuts/seeds/dried fruit for different varieties. Pecans or walnuts or almonds would be great replacements.
