Granola is more of an art than a science. You can mix it up however you like. Try different rolled grains. Use whatever type of nuts you like. Add seeds like pumpkin, sesame, or chia.


3 cups rolled oats

3/4 cup slivered almonds

3/4 cup chopped pecans

1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

1/3 cup real maple syrup

1/3 cup honey

1/4 cup melted virgin coconut oil

3/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp almond extract


1In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, and coconut. In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, honey, oil, salt, and extracts. Combine both mixtures well and press onto a large cookie sheet.

2Cook for 1 hour at 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Flip over. Cook for another 30 minutes until golden brown. Periodically open oven door to vent the moisture from the honey and maple syrup.
