I love vanilla, and I especially love good vanilla granola. I wanted to make a simple, basic granola recipe to put up here, so I decided on easy vanilla granola with just a few basic ingredients. The ingredient list is healthy and nourishing so you can feel good about eating this granola! Unlike store-bought granolas that are full of sugars and vegetable oils, this granola is made with honey and coconut oil. Pair it with some plain, full-fat yogurt, banana, and a drizzle of honey for a delicious breakfast or snack!
*Note: I would normally use old-fashioned rolled oats, but I accidentally bought a huge bucket of quick oats, which I used in the recipe. I haven’t tried making it with rolled oats yet, so I’m not sure how that would change or affect it, if at all.
