Ingredients

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1.5 cups nuts and/or seeds I have used almonds, hazelnuts, and pumpkin seeds. You can add whole or chopped nuts.
  • 2/3 cup dried fruits I have used cranberries and jumbo black raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 cup melted virgin coconut oil/ any other cooking oil In coconut oil use virgin coconut oil only otherwise the granola will taste too coconutty.
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup Non-vegans may use honey.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In a bowl add oats, nuts, seeds, salt, and cinnamon powder. Pour oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract to the bowl and mix well.
  • Spread evenly on a baking tray and put in a pre-heated oven. Bake for around 22-23 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius or till they become light golden brown. Don't overbake otherwise you won't get the clumps and the granola may burn also.
  • In the halfway of baking slightly stir the granola and then with a spatula bring everything closer and lightly press before continuing the baking, This will help in forming the clumps.
  • Once done, put the tray on a cooling rack and don't disturb it for a few hours. Best is if you can keep it like that overnight. The next day just break the granola into pieces with your hands and mix the dried fruits. Keep in an airtight container.
  • It will remain fine for around 15 days at room temperature.
