A crunchy and nutty granola that's great for breakfast or enjoyed as a topping!
Course: Breakfast, Main Dish, Shakes & Snacks
3/4cupunsweetened coconut flakes
1/4cupplus 2 TB coconut sugar
1/4cupplus 2 TB maple syrup
1/4cupvirgin coconut oilMelt the coconut oil before adding.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (oats, nuts, coconut, cinnamon, coconut sugar and salt).
Add wet ingredients to the dry bowl mix (maple syrup, vanilla, coconut oil and molasses).
Stir the ingredients together until combined and then put the granola on 2 baking sheet pans.
Cook for 15-25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to make sure it’s cooked consistently and doesn’t burn.
Remove granola from the oven and transfer into a large glass bowl.
Enjoy the granola for breakfast, as a snack or it makes a great topping!
Optional Toppings: 1 cup dried fruit, cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips. Add toppings when granola is cooled.
I like to use Silpats when baking. The granola doesn't stick to the pan and it cleans up easily.
