Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Melt the coconut oil with the honey/maple syrup in a small saucepan until starting to bubble and simmer.
  • Add vanilla.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the coconut chips, nuts, cinnamon, and dried fruit and chia seeds.
  • Pour honey/maple syrup/coconut oil mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well. The consistency will vary some depending on the honey, coconut chips, and coconut oil you use. If there is not enough of the honey mixture to lightly coat all of the ingredients, add slightly more melted coconut oil and honey in equal parts.
  • Spread on a parchment paper lined baking dish.
  • Bake for 15-20 until starting to brown.
  • Remove and let cool, then crumble in to granola pieces.
  • Store in an air-tight jar and use within two weeks.

Notes

There are endless ways to make this granola by changing up the kind of nuts, dried fruit, and sweetener that you use.
