Home made granola

Dry cereals have been around for along time making breakfast easy and fast.. Just adding milk or yogurt and its ready to be eaten.
But buying most commercial brands form your local grocery store is not always the healthiest option.
There loaded with sugar conservatives,color and wheat..So if there was a  way to make your own cereal without chemicals and with low or no sugar at all then you would take it right?
So here I will share a yummy and easy recipe to make granola.. Can be eaten with milk or yogurt and you could add your fresh fruit and seeds to it.
So here goes:
1 cup organic oats
I cup shredded cocunut
Half a cup raisins ( more if you like is ok)
3 table spoons of cocunut oil
Half a cup of honey
Seeds of any kind depending on your preference ( I use hemp seeds,sun flower)
Nuts like almonds ,macadamia
1 tsp cinnamon

So you combine oats,cocunut,raisins,nuts,cinnamon ,nuts and mix.
Melt honey and coconut oil and add to the oat mixture. Preheat your oven to 185 and then place the mixture to a cookie sheet and spead evenly..Bake for half and hour till golden brown. Take out of the oven and let the granola cool down and put in an airtight container.
And now you could have it with your fresh fruit and add more honey if you like..
