Maple Coconut Chia Granola

Granola is something that is definitely worth making at home. It’s super easy, only takes a few minutes of hands-on work, and is way cheaper to make yourself than to buy. As with anything homemade, you get to control exactly what goes in to your food. This is a really healthy granola- a lot less sugar than most recipes and made with coconut oil- so you can feel great about eating it often and feeding it to your family!

This recipe is so yummy! We like to have it with milk, in a parfait, or even on it’s own as a little snack. I like my granola on the plain side, so I don’t add too much to it, but feel free to add in your favorite mix-ins!
