Equipment

  • medium sized bowl
  • whisk
  • baking sheet

Ingredients

  • 4 cups old fashioned oatmeal organic is best (see post for reasoning)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup almond butter or any nut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk everything together except the oats.
  • **If your maple syrup is cold you may need to place your bowl of ingredients in the microwave for 30 seconds to one minute until everything comes to room temperature and mixes well.**
  • Add oats the wet mixture and combine well.
  • Pour the coated oats onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread out evenly.
  • Bake for 20 min then stir granola so the edges do not burn. Set timer for another 10 min and bake until edges are browned. The granola in the middle of the pan will not be as browned as the edges and that's okay. The granola will continue to bake while cooling on the pan.
  • I do not stir the granola and let it cool completely on the sheet pan. Once it's cooled, you will have chunks of granola that have hardened together though this granola is softer than most, which I prefer!
  • Store in an airtight container.
