Directions

Click:

  1. Preheat oven to 320°F (160°C).
  2. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl, mixing to combine.
  3. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil, maple syrup, and salt until well combined. Add this to the dry ingredients and stir to incorporate.
  4. Evenly distribute over a parchment-lined baking tray and bake in the centre rack of the preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to avoid burning and ensure even browning.
  5. Once lightly golden brown remove from the oven and allow to cool. Note: the granola will continue to harden as it cools.
  6. Once cooled, add in the dried fruit and chia seeds and stir to combine.
  7. When fully cooled, transfer to an airtight container or large glass storage jar.

Notes

  • Variations: add your own desired raw nuts, seeds, dried fruits, or spices such as cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.

Lovely, lovely ☺️
Very crunchy and wholesome granola, and I love the pecans and dried fruits in this one. I had an accident with my brown sugar (it had turned into stone inside the pantry😅), so I couldn’t use it. However, I believe that I wouldn’t miss it that much, as this granola became sufficiently crunchy and sweet by the maple syrup and coconut oil. Would the brown sugar make a big difference?

A lovely question, Louise! We have definitely done the same to brown sugar before too 🙊 Brown sugar helps with the crunchiness because of the molasses and adds a touch of sweetness, but it likely wouldn't be too big of a difference :)
