Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 15 minutes Total Time 25 minutes Servings 5 (2/3 cup per servings) Calories 394 kcal
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Add gluten-free old-fashioned oats, pecans, organic cane sugar, cinnamon powder, and salt to a large mixing bowl and stir. Add coconut oil and maple syrup to a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, whisking frequently until the two are combined.
Immediately pour over the dry ingredients and stir to combine until all oats and nuts are thoroughly coated.
Grab a 9 x13 inch
rectangular baking pan
and line it with baking sheets. Arrange granola on a pan and spread into an even layer.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, then remove from oven and turn the pan around so the other end goes into the oven first (so it bakes evenly).
To keep this granola chunky, don’t stir during baking, or right after.
Let cool completely before enjoying. Add dried fruit to the pan while the granola is cooling and then break into clumps.
Granola is 2/3 cups per serving for a total of 5 servings. Store in a mason jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. This is delicious with your favorite plant-based milk, as a topping on your favorite vegan ice cream, or on top of some vegan yogurt as a snack! Feel free to use whatever nut or dried fruit you desire.
