Maple & Honey Granola

A very sweet and crunchy granola that can be made without oil. I like this one because you just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and spread it on a tray.

Ingredients

  • Coconut oil for greasing pan or parchment paper
  • 4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed nuts I used pecans, walnuts and almonds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or pancake syrup
  • 1/4 cup honey Carrie uses molasses
  • 2 tablespoons organic sugar or raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1 full teaspoon of you are using coarse kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Additional dried fruit as needed

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Rub two large (13x18 inch) rimmed baking sheets with coconut oil or regular oil or skip the oil and use parchment.
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl and spread evenly on the two baking sheets.
  • Bake on the middle and lower racks, switching halfway through and stirring every 15 minutes, for about 40 to 45 minute or until granola is browned.
  • Remove from oven and let it cool and crisp. Stir in dried fruit if using.
  • Note: Carrie bakes hers one big sheet at 350 F. for about 30 minutes, stirring often. I prefer going slow and low at 300 F for about 40 minutes.
