Recipe by Thesaltedcookie.com

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup shelled pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with edges with a parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the oats, coconut, walnuts, cinnamon and shelled pumpkin seeds.
  3. Over low heat, gently whisk the sugar, maple syrup, and olive oil in a small saucepan just until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the liquid into the oat mixture using a spatula to evenly coat the dry ingredients.
  4. Spread the granola over the prepared cookie sheet, sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 325 degrees (160C) for about 30 minutes until the granola is dry, stirring with a spatula a few times to ensure it bakes evenly.
  5. Fold in the dried cranberries.
  6. Allow to cool before storing in an air-tight container or mason jar. Enjoy!
