This granola is my latest addiction. Lovely golden brown, crisp and sweet-but-not-too-sweet granola, with the addition of coconut chips which I’m also crazy about lately. I love having it with a cup of milk, topping it some dried cranberries. Morning, made.
Almond Coconut Granola
4 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
a handful of sliced almonds
a handful of roasted coconut chips
dried fruit, optional
- Mix rolled oats, brown sugar, salt, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla extract. Fold the mixture together with a rubber spatula until all of the oats and almonds are thoroughly coated.
- Turn the oat mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread into a thin, even layer.
- Bake until the top is lightly browned – about 30 minutes, stirring the oats halfway through. Add sliced almonds and coconut chips, bake for another 15-30 minutes until crisp.
- Cool, add dried fruit and store in an airtight container.
