Homemade Granola

I made this granola because I was wanting something with a little sweet, but also some crunch. It smells really good in the house when you bake this in the oven. The granola has a touch of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. This granola is great for breakfast, a snack and just because. I love having a healthy and nutritious snack around the house.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 4 c gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 c unsweetened coconut, shredded
  • 1 c almonds, sliced

  • 1 c pecans, chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
