Coconut Oil Granola
Another great granola recipe. Is there such a thing as a bad granola recipe? My kids weren't the hugest fans of the large almonds in the mix. Next time I will chop them up a bit.
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut shreds
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine oats, almonds, both kinds of coconut, coconut oil, maple syrup and stir. When thoroughly saturated, add the brown sugar on top and continue to stir. Season with salt and spread the granola in an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes making sure to stir granola evenly every 10 minutes or so. Let granola cool and transfer to an air tight container. It will last up to two weeks.
