Make-Ahead Ingredients

Granola

40 minutes

Ingredients:

4 cups rolled oats

1 cup desiccated coconut

2 tsp cinnamon

¼ cup ground flax seed

¼ cup  pumpkin seeds

¼ cup  slivered almonds

¼ cup  sunflower seeds (or whatever nuts/seeds you like)

½ cup melted coconut oil or canola

1 tsp of vanilla

2/3 cup maple syrup

and at the very end: 1 cup of raisins or other dried fruit

 

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

 

Mix all the dry ingredients, except the dried fruit, in a large bowl then mix in the oil, vanilla and maple syrup.

Spread out the mixture onto one baking sheet and bake for approx. 30 minutes (the edges will turn golden and your house will smell amazing when it’s ready).

 

Toss the granola with the dried fruit once it cools. Store your granola in an airtight container.

Serve it like cereal, with plant-based milk, fresh fruit or even coconut whipped cream.
