Granola and eggnog, the two things I can't get enough of. Granola eggnog? Now that is what I'm talking about!
I love making my own granola to throw on top of my yogurt in the mornings. Store bought granola is usually loaded in sugar. I took my normal granola recipe and made some swaps to incorporate eggnog! I plan on making an extra batch to bring home for Christmas.

The recipe is extremely healthy! All kinds of healthy fats, protein, and fiber! I love feel good, taste good foods.
Ingredients: *2 Cups Trail Mix (Mine was the weight watchers blend) *2 Cups Quick Oats, *2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon, *1 1/2 Cups Eggnog, *3 Tbsp Coconut Oil, *1 Cup Steel Cut Oats, *4 Tbsps Chia Seeds, *2 Packets Stevia (Or 3 Tbsp Honey), *1/4 Cup Almond Flour, *4 Tbsp Brown Sugar.
Add ground cinnamon and trail mix to a large mixing bowl.
Add the almond flour and chia seeds to the bowl.
Add the brown sugar. (unpacked)
Give the ingredients a good stir!
Melt the coconut oil. Stir the melted coconut oil and 1/2 cup of eggnog together.
Add the oil and eggnog to the bowl. (make sure you leave 1 cup of the eggnog aside)
Let the mixture soak up the eggnog and oil for about five minutes. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Give the coated trail mix one last stir.
Add the oats to the bowl.
If you do not have steel cut oats, you can replace them with regular quick oats.
Mix the oats in with the trail mix until blended well.
Add the remaining eggnog to the mixing bowl and stir.
Add the Stevia or honey.
Add granola to a greased baking sheet.
Spread out with a spatula.
Bake on 300 for 30 minutes. Every 5-7 minutes, take the spatula and move the granola around. Let the granola continue to cook in to over for an hour at 220 degrees. Continue to stir the granola around.
Everyone's oven cooks differently; so if your granola starts to harden, turn off the oven and let the granola sit for a while.
And learn from my mistake...use both hands when removing the granola from the oven.
