  • 1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 5 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup raw pecans, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup raw cashews, roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275°F (135°C) and line two baking sheets with baking paper.
  2. Heat a saucepan over low heat and add in the maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine. Once coconut oil has melted, turn off the stove, and allow the mixture to cool off. 
  3. In a bowl, combine the oats, nuts, seeds, and the liquid mixture. Toss well. Split the mixture between the two baking sheets, and spread it out evenly. 
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Quickly remove the sheets from the oven, flip/toss the granola, and bake for a further 8 minutes. Quickly remove again and sprinkle the coconut flakes on top, and bake for 7 more minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven, and allow the granola to cool completely. Mix with the dried fruit. Enjoy!
