Granola (Trim Healthy Mama Approved)

I have often cringed while my kids pour themselves a bowl full of cheerios in the mornings. My kids love cheerios and granola. Surely there is a THM approved granola recipe somewhere?? Well, good news! There is a great recipe, right here! Keep on scrolling :)

Turn on the oven to 300*F 


  • 10 C old fashioned oats, or any oats... I had 3 different types of oats, in they all went!
  • 1 C wheat germ or psyllium husks
  • 1/2 C golden flax seeds, ground
  • 1 C shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1 C seeds, sunflower, pumpkin etc (or a mix)
  • 2 C organic sprouted whole wheat flour
  • 2 t himalayan/grey salt
  • 1/2 xylitol

  • 1 1/2 C coconut oil
  • 1 C honey * (if this is for you and you're looking to lose weight, omit the honey!)
  • 2 T coconut/vanilla (or both) extract

  • 1-2 C dates, chopped
  • 1-2 C raisins/sultanas/cranberries/dried fruits

  1.  First mix all the "dry" ingredients
  2. Then in a saucepan over medium heat, melt the "wet" ingredients
  3. Combine the two, and mix well
  4. Spread the granola onto baking pans, about 1" thick, and bake for about 45 to 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so.
  5. After the granola has cooled down, add the dried berries/fruit.
Makes about 21-22 Cups :) That's about 28-32 servings! (well, at least in my house)

(serve over almond milk, helps bring down the greenhouse gas emissions...more on that later.)
