Homemade granola is equally delicious on the breakfast table or by the handful for a satisfying snack.
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 9 cups
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup real maple syrup
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 4 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 cups pecans chopped
  • ½ cup flax seeds
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup dried currants
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the dark brown sugar, maple syrup, olive oil, coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together oats, coconut flakes, pecans and flax seeds.
  4. Pour the sugar mixture over the dry ingredients and stir well to combine.
  5. Spread the granola in an even layer on a parchment or nonstick foil lined sheet tray and bake for 45 minutes, stirring 4-5 times. Granola should be golden brown when finished. If you prefer a clumpier granola, stir less frequently, but be careful it doesn't burn.
  6. Toss in the dried fruit when you remove the granola from the oven.
  7. Let cool completely and store in an airtight container.
