breakfast granola

a delicious recipe from my sister ...  enjoy!

3 cups large flake oatmeal
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup (or more!) cashew pieces
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup oil

preheat the oven to 250.  combine first 6 ingredients.  whisk together maple syrup and oil, and pour over granola mixture.  stir to coat.  divide granola onto 2 cookie trays and bake 1-2 hours (it only takes me one), stirring every 20 minutes to brown.  remove and let cool.

add any dried fruit to store, or when serving so you can mix it up every time!

store in an air tight container.  

makes 6 cups.

Just made this last night! I can't stop eating it! I actually was short on ingredients, but instead of coconut I had craisins and I have this coconut sugar that I haven't really used and it turned out great! :) Thanks, Erin!
