I always try my best to make my own recipes if possible. In my household we are always looking for snacks that are quick to grab on the go, but still healthy. We love granola and I found that I was spending $7/bag on a local brand of granola every week! While I am all for supporting local business, this is something I can make at home and save myself the $$.
I meal prep this in advance, put it in a container and throw it in the pantry. It usually lasts a whole week (there are only 2 of us). So, here’s the recipe! Hope you like it! :)
1/2 cup honey or syrup (3/4 cup and it will clump together better)
1/2 cup olive or canola oil
3 heaping spoons full cup cacao powder
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg (can be overwhelming, so back off the amount if you don’t want a strong nutmeg taste)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups oats (can use gluten free oats)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
1 cup dark chocolate chips
