Granola (Salted Maple)

  • 3 C old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2/3 C unsweetened finely shredded coconut
  • 1/2 C chopped pecans
  • 1/2 C sliced almonds
  • 1/4 C sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 C vegetable oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 C maple syrup
  • 1/3 C (packed) light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 C chopped dried cherries (the sourer the better)

Preheat oven to 350. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, coconut, pecans, almonds and sunflower seeds. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla and salt. Add to the oat mixture and toss together.

Spread the granola on the baking sheet and bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally, 25 to 30 minutes (the edges will get a nice, dark brown color, but if you think the nuts are entering Burnville, pull it). Remove from the oven, cool completely, and stir in the cherries. Granola keeps, stored in an airtight container, for up to 2 weeks.

Pumpkin seeds work nicely in place of the sunflower seeds.
