Honey Pear Granola

Honey Pear Granola

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with granola. I put it in my Açaí Bowls, in my cottage cheese, in my yogurt, basically I eat it all of the time. My favorite granola as of late? My Honey Pear Granola.

So I thought it about time I share it with y’all.

This Honey Pear Granola recipe takes about 30 minutes to make. I make a big batch about once a week and then chow on it throughout the week. It’s easy to make and surprisingly healthy/low-calorie. I dig. Keep reading for the full recipe.

Serves: 10-12

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of walnut pieces
  • 1/2 cup of pecan pieces
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 pear, diced
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF (175ºC) and spray two large baking sheets with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, walnut pieces, pecan pieces, sugar, cinnamon, sea salt, and diced pear. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the coconut oil and whisk it with the honey and vanilla extract. Once all of the coconut oil is melted, pour the liquid mixture over the oats mixture. Stir to combine.

Pour the mixture onto the baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven, shake up the oats a bit, and then place the baking sheets back into the oven for an additional 15 minutes. The granola should be browned.

Immediately after removing the baking sheets from the oven, toss the granola again to make sure that it doesn’t stick to the pans. Let cool on the pans before transferring to an air-tight container and/or chowing down.
