Simple and classic. Enjoy with banana oat milk, or your favourite non dairy beverage. Top with additional fixings like coconut flakes, ground flax, chia or fresh fruit.
2 cups rolled oats
1⁄2 cup pecans or almonds
1/2 cup mixed dried fruit such as cranberries, raisins, figs, prunes, apricots, peaches, cherries
1/3 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
2 tsp cinnamon
1⁄2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1⁄2 cup maple syrup, or liquid sweetener like agave. It’s best not to bake with honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp vanilla extract
PREHEAT oven to 275° F. Line Baking sheet with parchment paper. IN A LARGE BOWL, combine oats, pecans, cranberries, raisins, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt. IN A SEPARATE BOWL, combine maple syrup, ginger, coconut oil and vanilla. ADD maple syrup mixture to oat mixture and combine well. SPREAD granola in a thin layer on baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes to prevent burning. Cool completely and store for up to a week in an airtight container.
