Recipe from Lovely Little Kitchen.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor or blender, pulse half of the almonds until they are very finely chopped. Pour them into a large bowl. Then chop the other half of the almonds coarsely, and pour them into the same bowl.
  3. Pour the oats, salt, and brown sugar into the bowl with the almonds and stir to combine.
  4. In a small microwaveable bowl, combine honey and coconut oil, and heat for 40 seconds. Stir to dissolve the coconut oil, and add the vanilla and almond extract.
  5. Pour the honey mixture over the oats, and stir so that they are evenly coated. Pour the mixture evenly onto the baking sheet (helpful if it has sides).
  6. Bake for 5 minutes, and then stir and spread back to an even layer. Return to the oven for 5 more minutes, or until golden brown around the edges.
  7. Pour the granola and onto a piece of wax paper to cool. Spread it out into a thin layer - about 1/2 inch thick. After it cools completely, break the granola into clusters and store in an airtight container.
