Ingredients

  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (use a vegan brand of brown sugar, or use additional maple syrup for a vegan substitute)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 2 cups Old-Fashioned rolled oats

Instructions

  • Melt coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Add syrup, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt to the skillet. Stir for about 2 minutes, and then add the coconut and the oats. Continue stirring for about 5-7 minutes, or until the oats and coconut are toasted and golden brown. The oats will not be crunchy at this point -- they will firm up and become crunchy as they cool.
  • Transfer granola to a parchment-lined baking sheet or a large cutting board to cool. I like to use the back of a large spoon or spatula to gently press the warm granola firmly onto the baking sheet. This helps it clump together as it cools and hardens.

Notes

  • This granola recipe is made with maple syrup, but you can substitute with honey if you're not looking for a vegan granola recipe.
  • I’ve used pecans here, but you can swap them out for your favorite nut. Try walnuts, pistachios, almonds or peanuts!
  • We prefer the sweet taste of the sweetened shredded coconut, but unsweetened coconut also works.
  • I used coconut oil here, but you can also use canola oil or avocado oil.
