– old-fashioned oats – unsalted almonds – shredded, sweetened coconut – light brown sugar – maple syrup – vegetable oil – salt

Recipe Ingredients

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the oats, nut, coconut, and brown sugar.

Recipe Instructions

In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, oil and salt. Add oil mixture to oats mixture and stir until combined.

Recipe Instructions

Pour mixture onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes to ensure even toasting.

Recipe Instructions

Remove from the oven and let it cool for 1 hour. Transfer granola to a tightly-sealed container, and store at room temperature for up to 1 month.

Recipe Instructions

Go low and slow. You might be tempted to increase the oven temperature, but granola should be baked at a lower temperature. Slowly dehydrating your granola helps to create a crispy and crunchy texture.
