Almond Joy Granola




I made this recipe yesterday, and it turned out amazing. I was in a creative mood, so I just pulled from here and there and voila! This is what transpired.

12 cups uncooked oats
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 protein powder of choice (vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon roll,etc)
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
1 tbsp vanilla
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

melt coconut oil, honey and vanilla. Mix rest of ingredients in mixing bowl, then pour melted mixture over. Stir, stir, stir, to get everything all combined. Spread on 3 cooking sheets and bake at 300 degrees for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheets, then transfer to container.

Wonderful with greek yogurt, almond milk, etc.
