Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 1/2 cup neutral oil or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 4 cups large flake oats
  • 2 cups nuts and seeds
  • 1.5 cups dried fruit
  • pinch salt
  • generous sprinkle of cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 325F.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil and maple syrup.

  3. In a large bowl, stir together the oats and nuts, salt, and cinnamon (leave the dried fruit out for now).

  4. Pour the oil and maple syrup mixture over the dry ingredients and toss to thoroughly coat.

  5. Spread granola onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spreading it thinly will result in a toastier taste, spreading it thickly will result in bigger clumps.

  6. Bake at 325F for 20 mins or until nuts smell toasted.

  7. Remove from oven and spread the dried fruit on top of granola and leave to cool.

  8. Break into pieces.

  9. Keep in an airtight container (I use a large Ziploc freezer bag).
