Cinnamon French Toast Granola

IMG_1324

Who doesn’t like french toast? Cinnamon buttery goodness topped with sweet sticky maple syrup. Now imagine that same flavor in the form of a healthy snack. I recently started making my own granola and I just had to share how easy it is. Many recipes I found called for honey but I was craving the deep richness of pure maple syrup, which is how I ended up with a cinnamon french toast flavor (yum!). Quality store-bought granola can set you back anywhere from $6-9 a pound. Homemade granola, however,  is not only simple to make but it’s much more economical too. So here’s to healthy, homemade snacking on a budget!

Ingredients
4 cups Quick Oats
2 cups raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup vegetable or coconut oil

Directions
Preheat your oven to 325 F. Combine all your ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well to coat. Spread the mixture evenly on two sheet pans and pop in the oven for approximately 20 minutes until golden brown. While baking, take the pans out every 5 minutes and move the granola around so that they cook evenly and don’t burn. Once the granola is done and cooled, seal in a airtight container and enjoy as a cereal, mid-day nibble, or as a yogurt topper.
