An easy no-stir granola recipe that is perfect for gift giving.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup almonds (I used a mixture of walnuts and pecans)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup sweetened, flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/4 cup melted butter (or 2 T. butter and 2 T. oil)
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Mix all the ingredients and spread on a cookie sheet. I like to line my sheet with nonstick foil.
  3. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. No need to stir! Reese says you’ll know when it’s done because it will be crunchy and golden.
  4. Remove from the oven, break apart any large clumps, and cool. Store in plastic bag or 2-quart jar. I am storing it in freezer bags and freezing it until next week, at which point I will divide it up for teachers.
Notes
If you're using regular table salt you might want to reduce it to a about 3/8 teaspoon. If you don't want to use too much maple syrup, you can use half maple syrup and half honey. I always incorporate the honey when I make this.
