ingredients

  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients (oats, nuts, pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and chia seeds).

  • Step 3

    Add oil and maple syrup to your dry ingredients, then thoroughly mix, making sure everything is evenly coated.

  • Step 4

    Divide granola into the center of each baking sheet and spread evenly. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven for a quick mix. Using a spatula, mix the granola on the baking sheet and then re-spread into an even layer. Place granola back into the oven and bake for another 13 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Remove granola from oven and cool for 30-45 minutes. Using your hands, break granola into small clusters, and enjoy!
