Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Old-fashioned Oats
  • 1 Cup Pecans roughly chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Maple syrup
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut oil
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Brown sugar

Instructions

  • In a bowl combine oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and mix to combine everything.
  • Preheat oven to 300F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a small saucepan, add maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and brown sugar over medium heat.
  • Bring to a boil, and then when the mixture starts to bubble and foam up, turn the heat down to low and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. Then turn the heat off and let cool and thicken for another 1-2 minutes. (The brown sugar should be totally dissolved)
  • Pour the liquid over the dry mix and toss until everything is completely coated. Spread the mixture out on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 1 hour until mixture is dark golden brown. Then crack the oven open and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely before breaking the granola into clusters. Store in an airtight container.
