Maple granola makes a great gift from the kitchen. This granola is easy, healthy and budget friendly.

 

Ingredients

  • 5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup raisins

 

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 275 F.
  2. Combine oats, coconut, almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. Combine syrup, water and oil in a medium bowl or large measuring cup and pour over the oat mixture; stir until well combined.
  3. Spread the mixture into a large (12-by-15-inch) roasting pan or large rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven, stir and continue baking until golden brown and beginning to crisp, about 45 minutes more.
