Granola is one of those things I always crave but when at the grocery I can never get myself to fork over the $10.00 for a tiny bag.
Solution? Make it.
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups chopped raw pecans
1 cup hulled, raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup coconut chips
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 virgin coconut oil (melted)
1/3 cup packed, light brown sugar
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl mix oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, and coconut chips. In a small bowl combine maple syrup, coconut oil, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Mix with a fork untile combined. Drizzle over the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
On a non-stick baking pan, spread out the granola. Bake for 25 minutes (or until crisp). Use a spatula to turn oats as you go.
