Ingredients

  • 2 cups of old fashioned oats (not quick oats)
  • 1/2 cup of sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, melted (or butter)
  • 1/2 cup of pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chunks (or chocolate chips)

Instructions

  1. To get started, preheat over to 325ยบ.
  2. In a large bowl, toss old fashioned oats, sliced almonds, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the wet ingredients, melted coconut oil {or butter}, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk until combined.
  4. Pour wet mixture over dry mixture and toss to coat everything.
  5. On a baking sheet, place either a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. Then spread granola mixture out across entire pan.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until granola is slightly browned. {I did 30 minutes and it was perfect} You will want to turn the granola every 10 minutes so it doesn’t burn. ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. Remove from oven and let cool.
  8. Mix in the coconut flakes and chocolate chunks when the granola has completely cooled.
