“Seeds and Nuts” Maple Granola

You could eat this granola with milk, like cereal, or munch it plain - but the way I like to eat it is stirred into yogurt.

Ingredients

  • 3 cup oats
  • 1 cup raisins
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 0.33 cup coconut oil
  • 0.25 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 0.25 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 0.67 cup chopped almonds
  • 0.5 cup chopped pecans
  • 0.5 cup flax seeds
  • 0.5 cup sunflower seeds
  • 0.5 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 0.5 cup dried blueberries

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, coconut, seeds, and nuts. Melt the coconut oil and add it to the bowl, along with the spices, vanilla, and maple syrup. Add a generous pinch of salt. Combine well and spread evenly on a baking pan. Bake for 8-10  minutes, then stir the granola and re-spread evenly on the pan. Bake for 4-5 minutes at a time, stirring in between, until the granola is golden brown and the edges are starting to get slightly crunchy. Allow to cool a bit before adding the raisins and blueberries. Store in an airtight container and serve with your favorite yogurt, milk, or by the handful.
