Ingredients

  • 3 cups old-fashioned, rolled oats

  • 1 cup mixed nuts try walnuts, sunflower seeds, or pecans.
  • ½ cup agave syrup honey makes a good substitute, if needed.
  • ¼ cup natural maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cup coconut oil sunflower oil is a good substitute for coconut oil.

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 290 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, combine coconut oil, agave and maple syrup. Heat for approximately 30 seconds. Add the vanilla and whisk together to fully melt it together.
  • Chop 1 cup of mixed nuts, set aside.
  • In a large bowl stir together oats, craisins, nuts and melted oil mixture.
  • Spread on the parchment lined baking sheet. Be sure to spread it as evenly as possible.
  • Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes, stirring halfway through. It will be brown and dry when it is done.
  • Turn the oven off and let it cool in the oven (this helps it stay super crunchy!) Granola will become more crunchy as it cools. Store right away!
