  • 1/2-1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3-1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup milled/ground flax seed

  • 7 tbsp honey
  • 3 tsp brown (or demara) sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

Summary

I love yogurt, granola and fresh fruit – as breakfast, snack or anytime. Being frustrated with the high fat (and who knows what ingredients) in store-bought granolas, I blended elements of several recipes and came up with this fast, easy and most importantly, delicious homemmade granola. Enjoy!
