Homemade Skinny Granola

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 5 cups oats
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • ½ cup of light agave
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup sliced coconut
  • ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup dried berries (optional)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Toss the oats, coconut, almonds, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, and chia seeds together in a large bowl. Whisk the agave and canola together in a liquid measuring cup. Then, pour the combined mixture over the dry ingredients.

Make sure to stir with a wooden spoon until all the oats are thoroughly coated with the agave and canola mixture. Spread the mixture onto a large baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, checking periodically and stirring with a spatula until the mixture is golden brown. Let the granola cool. Then, mix in the dried berries. You can add all different types of dried fruit.  I added cranberries!
