  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 banana, mashed well
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup chopped raw walnuts
  • 3/4 cup chopped raw pecans
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp flax seed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small sauce pan combine maple syrup and coconut oil and gently heat on low until melted.

While that’s heating, combine oats, walnuts, pecans, salt, cinnamon and flax seed in a bowl and stir well.

Once the coconut oil has melted, add vanilla and banana to the sauce pan and stir well.  Pour liquid mixture over oat mixture and stir until well coated.

Prepare a baking pan with parchment paper.  Spread granola mixture over pan (if it’s too crowded, use 2 pans to help it crisp up better).  Bake 23+ minutes or until slightly browned and crisping up, breaking up and mixing around about half way through.  If you need to bake longer, check every minute or two as it can burn quickly.  Allow to cool on pan.  Once completely cool, transfer to glass bowl and store covered.
