My lovely roommate, Andrea, decided to make a delicious granola tonight, which fits all the criteria for this blog, so she is letting me use the recipe!

Ingredients (don’t worry about being exact, these measures are flexible)

  • 2 cups of raw old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds (unsalted or slightly salted)
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (real stuff!)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of agave
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • quarter cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl- if you prefer you can mix the wet and dry ingredients separately before mixing them together
  2. Put on a baking tray lined with tin foil
  3. Put in the over at 325 F for at least 25 minutes
  4. Let cool and enjoy- eat dry, with lactose-free yogurt, or lactose-free milk! (We had it with almond milk)

Note: feel free to put any ingredients you want in this besides flax seeds, which don’t cook well
