Vanilla Almond Granola Cereal

This recipe  comes from The Marathon Mom. She is the mom of 8 boys… what a lucky mom! I’d love to have all boys like that. I’m 1/4 of the way there 🙂


  • 3 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup almonds – coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup packed brown
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. In small saucepan, stir together brown sugar, coconut oil, and honey.  Stir constantly while bringing to a boil.
