Cinnamon-Almond Granola

I love eating granola with yogurt, sprinkled on top of a smoothie, or even just in a bowl with milk. But with it being close to $4 a box, it's more of a special treat than a daily snack. Had I known that it was so easy and delicious to make, at a fraction of the price, I would have done it long ago! The best thing about this recipe, aside from the incredible taste, is it's adaptability. I've already made an incredible tropical version and have several more varieties I'm looking forward to trying out soon! It is super easy to use this recipe as a guide and swap out the fruit, nuts, and seeds with your own favorites- you can't go wrong, have fun with it!

Cinnamon-Almond Granola
Makes 4-5 cups

3 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup raisins (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
3. Drizzle oil, honey, and vanilla over the top and stir well until completely incorporated.
4. Spread out over a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring gently every 10 minutes.
