Whole Grain Granola Muffins

These muffins have some great ingredients in them. I love all the texture in them as well. I enjoy letting the muffins sit over night and the flavors are enhanced.  They do taste great right out of the oven too. Granola can be used for a lot of things. :) Can you feel Spring in the air?  Hello, to warmer weather. 

1 1/2 C whole grain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

1/3 coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla or almond extract
