Ingredients

    Simple Yet Delicious Granola

    Ingredients:

    4 cups (400 grams) old-fashioned rolled oats
    1 cup (50 grams) shredded or chipped coconut
    1 cup nuts of choice, chopped coarse
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or coconut oil
    1/4 cup honey
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1/2 cup dried fruits (cranberries, cherries, apricots, raisins, etc.) optional - Stir in after baking
    Directions:

    1) Preheat oven to 300 F and place rack in center of oven. Either grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    2) In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, coconut, nuts, and salt.

    3) In a small saucepan set over medium low heat, melt the butter. Remove from heat. Stir in the honey, maple syrup, and vanilla. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and toss together, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated with the butter mixture.

    4) Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every five minutes. Do not over bake.

    5) Place on a wire rack to cool. You will notice that the granola is still sticky when you remove it from the oven but it will become crisp and dry as it cools. Once the granola has completely cooled stir in your choice of dried fruits if desired. Store in an airtight container or plastic bag. It will keep for several weeks.

    Makes about five cups of Granola

Tips

Add more oats for a lighter version. You'll get more oats and less of the other stuff in each serving.
