Power Packed Granola

An easy homemade granola recipe packed with chia seeds, flax seeds, and fiber that tastes even better than it smells.

If you’re looking for the perfect yogurt topper, something to sprinkle on top of your smoothie bowl, or just a healthy snack, this Power-Packed granola is for YOU.

I fell in love with granola way back in the day when I worked at Cox Honeyland¬†in college. They introduced me to their Honey Granola and I’ve been a goner ever since.

I wanted to switch up my granola game and cut out the vegetable oil and added sugars, and add in some good-for-you foods (that I could sneak past my kids, too).

Power-Packed Ingredients:

I call this granola “power-packed” because it is full of ingredients that are small, but mighty. ūüėČ With ingredients like oats, almonds, pecans, chia seeds, and flax seeds, it packs a punch of antioxidants, protein, and fiber with every spoonful.

See what makes each of these ingredients so good for you.

CHIA SEEDS
One of the most asked questions is probably “Why are chia seeds good for you?”

Even for being so small, they are packed with fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids. We love to sneak them into our smoothies, but this granola is another great way to sneak them in. Bonus: you can’t really taste them, either.

OLD-FASHIONED OATS
They’re gluten-free whole grains, and a great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. They’re also considered a “heart-healthy” food, too.

FLAX SEEDS
Like chia seeds, flax seeds are packed full of nutrients, especially omega-3 fatty acids (“good fats”) and antioxidants.

ALMONDS AND PECANS
It’s well-known that almonds are full of fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E. Plus, eating almonds has been linked to lower blood sugar levels, reduced blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels.

Pecans are full of manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc.

How to make power-packed granola:

Did I convince you to make this yet? And to all that goodness above, add in a little cinnamon, salt, and shredded coconut and it just gets better.

Combine all the dry ingredients, and then mix together melted coconut oil, raw honey, and a little bit of vanilla.

Mix it in with your dry ingredients, then pour it on a parchment paper lined baking sheet (or use a baking mat), and bake it until the coconut and oats are nice and toasty.

You’ll want to remove it about halfway through and stir the mixture to prevent it from burning.

Serve it over a smoothie bowl, your favorite greek yogurt, or just eat it plain.
