Crunchy Cashew & Walnut Granola

It seems like the days of comforting breakfasts finally has arrived. Speaking of the question "What's best to eat for such an occasion?",  nothing but a bowl of crunchy, nutty flavored granola with oat yoghurt and some drizzled honey, tops off the list. Well, there isn't much more to say about the granola itself, other than from my point of view every type of granola is the best. If an awesome jar or crunchy, sweet and nutty granola isn't something for you, then I honestly don't know what is. 

Crunchy Cashew & Walnut Granola

Makes a large jar

3 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup cashew butter
6 tbsp organic honey
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups oats
1 1/2 cup walnuts
1/3 cup flaxseeds

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 320°F. In a small saucepan, combine coconut oil, cashew butter, honey, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Heat the stove top up to medium heat, and place the saucepan on top. Stir continious until it's all smoothened out. In a large mixing bowl, add in the oats , walnuts and flaxseeds. Pour over the nutty liquid, and give it all a good stir. Line up a deep baking tray and have have the mixture inside. Spread it evenly around and place it in the oven. Let it cook for 20 minutes, but giving it a stir every 5 minutes or so. Let the granola cool, and pour over into a jar. Enjoy with some almond milk or your favorite yoghurt!
