Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (or a scant ¼ cup of oil of choice)
  • ⅓ cup + 2 Tbsp. maple syrup

  8. Store granola in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 3 weeks. 

Notes

Feel free to change up this granola using whatever dried fruit sounds good to you – or leave it out entirely. This recipe is perfect for meal preps and also keeps in a tightly-closed container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
