Easy and Quick Homemade Vanilla Almond Granola

Making homemade granola can cut down on your grocery bill and also happens to be super easy! Plus, I love that you can control the amount of sugar added and can customize to your liking by adding in your favorite nuts, seeds and dried fruits. In addition to making a great cereal, granola can be added to yogurt and fresh fruit for a breakfast parfait and makes a great snack all on its own!

Homemade Vanilla Almond Granola

Adapted from


3 cups Rolled Oats
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/3 cup Honey
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/2 cup sliced Almonds
Amazing Vanilla Almond Granola Made with Coconut Oil
Directions: Mix oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix coconut oil, honey, and vanilla. Pour the liquid mixture over the oats mixture and mix until evenly coated. In a thin and even layer, spread out over a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat or a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. You may need to separate into two baking sheets to ensure oats toast evenly and get that crunchy texture. Bake at 325 degrees for about 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Take out of oven, toss with nuts and/or dried fruit, and let cool. Texture will become crunchy as it cools. Store in airtight container.

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
