Easy Orange Coconut Granola (Gluten free!)

Hello again! I know I’ve been MIA from the blog lately, prepping for baby Judith’s arrival. But now my to-do list is dwindling (ok, so it really ebbs and flows between “a lot of stuff to do” and “MORE than a lot of stuff to do”, but at this exact moment it’s not too bad), so I’m taking time to relax and do things I enjoy (like blogging) while I can before sleepless nights become the norm!

The aroma alone of this granola makes it worth baking a batch. Your kitchen will smell glorious!

Orange Coconut Granola

Ingredients:

4 c. oats

1 c. chopped nuts (I used almonds)

1/4 c. chia seeds

1/4 c. unsweetened coconut flakes

5-6 T. coconut oil, melted

1/2 c. maple syrup (I used 1/4 c. maple syrup and 1/4 c. honey, since we’re low on maple syrup)

2 drops Cinnamon essential oil (email me about the brand I use)

5 drops Wild Orange essential oil (email me about the brand I use)

1/4 t. ground cinnamon

1/4 t. salt

2/3 c. raisins (or other dried fruit)

Directions:

Mix dry ingredients (except dried fruit), and mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add wet to dry and stir to thoroughly combine.

Add dried fruit after baking. Breathe in deep when you take the granola out of the oven!

Have a lovely weekend! I’m headed to an all-day essential oils training with my team tomorrow (unless I go into labor tonight 😉 ). Can’t wait!
