Ingredients

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup cashew nuts
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup mixed seeds (I used a mixture of sesame, flax, sunflower and pumpkin seeds)
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
  • Combine all the oats, nuts and seeds in a large mixing bowl.
  • Melt together the coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and salt.
  • Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix well.
  • Transfer to a non-stick rimmed baking sheet.
  • Place in the oven and allow to bake for 15-20 minutes. Stir the granola every 7-10 minutes to allow even browning. Take care not to burn the granola as the maple syrup will caramelize quickly.
  • Remove the baked granola from the oven and allow to cool completely before transferring to an airtight jar and storing for up to 2 months.
