I got rid of all breakfast cereals a long time ago (much to the dismay of my younger son).  Besides eggs, oatmeal, smoothies, and french toast this granola recipe serves as our go-to cold cereal option.  I have it with milk in the morning or sprinkled on yogurt for a snack. I bet it would be delicious on vanilla ice cream!

Maple Granola
Ingredients
  1. 3 cups rolled oats
  2. 1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut chips or flakes
  3. 1 cup pecans, chopped
  4. 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  5. 1 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  8. 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (sounds odd, but use it!!)
  9. 1/2 cup raisins (or other dried fruit)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Mix together the oats, coconut, nuts, sunflower seeds, salt, cinnamon, maple syrup and olive oil in a large bowl.
  3. Spread the granola evenly on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake, stirring every 10 minutes, for 40 minutes.
  5. Add the raisins, and bake an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Let cool completely before storing in the refrigerator.
Notes
  1. The granola can be stored for up to two weeks, but I doubt it will last that long!

  1. This looks so good, that I can’t possibly make it. I would eat the whole thing. Maybe I will just make one serving at a time.

    1. Suzanne, I store my batch of granola in half gallon mason jars in the fridge. It usually lasts us about a week. However, it can be stored longer. Enjoy!

  2. Wouldn’t using coconut oil instead of olive oil be healthier for you? That is going in my mix this morning. I used the same amount.

  3. SINCE I AM FROM THE CARIBEAN, I MAKE IT TROPICAL STYLE:
    COCONUT OIL
    COCONUT MILK,
    LOCAL HONEY,
    CHOPPED SWEETENED GINGER,
    CUT UP DRIED PINEAPPLE,
    CUT UP DRIED PAPAYA,
    COCONUT FLAKES OR SHREDS
    PUMPKIN SEEDS,
    SUNFLOWER SEEDS,
    CINNAMON,
    CAYENNE PEPPER
    UMSWEETENED COCOA
    AND OF COURSE THE OATS
    IT COMES OUT EXQUISITE, GOURMET GRANOLA!
