Total time: 1 hour 10 mins
Scaled down version of granola similar to granola at The Viceroy hotels
Ingredients
  • 2 cups minus about 2 tablespoons oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped, lightly salted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup walnuts and almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons (tightly packed) brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (I used the cheap kind this time, not extra virgin)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Combine oats, peanuts, nuts, coconut, brown sugar, and salt. Mix the maple syrup and coconut oil in a microwave-safe cup and microwave for about 30 seconds or until coconut oil is melted. Add the vanilla and pour over the dry ingredients. Spread it all on a large, nonstick foil lined baking sheet and bake at 250F for about an hour. For a lighter colored granola, cover loosely with foil for the first 45 minutes, then remove foil and bake uncovered for the last 15 to 20.
  2. Granola will crisp as it cools. Let cool, leave in large chunks in airtight container. Mix with dry fruit before serving (I didn’t)
