Yields about 10 cups

  • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut, preferably unsweetened
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup pure Vermont maple syrup (Grade A Dark Color with Robust Taste is best)
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine rolled oats, coconut, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, and pecans in a large bowl. Pour maple syrup and olive oil into bowl and mix thoroughly.  Sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt and pour mixture onto large baking sheet, spreading to create a uniform layer.

Bake granola, stirring every 15-20 minutes, until it is golden brown, about 1 hour.

Serve and enjoy!
