Introduction: Maple Pecan Granola

Granola is not only tasty, healthy, and versatile, but really easy to make. I have tried other recipes, but really wasn't that happy with them. This recipe has the perfect amount of sweetness and takes only 40 minutes from start to finish. Plus it is really inexpensive to make. So try it out and you'll wonder why you haven't done this before.

Step 1: Ingredients

1 C olive oil

3/4 C honey

1/8 C maple syrup

1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp salt

4 cups of rolled oats

2 cup of chopped pecans or the nut of your choice

1 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut

Step 2: Directions


Preheat oven to 350, line a large baking/roasting pan (with sides) with parchment paper.

Mix the honey, oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt together in a large pot. Heat ingredients till they come to just about a boil.

In a large bowl mix together the oats, coconut, and pecans.

Then coat the dry ingredients with the syrup mixture until evenly distributed.

Spread mixture onto a pan and place in the oven.

Bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown. Do not stir; this allows for the granola to be in large chunks.

When the granola is cooled add dried fruit if desired and enjoy!

Store in jars or ziplock bags.
