Super easy granola!

6 parts dry, 1 part wet. Followed Epicurious’ granola instructions and used the following for dry ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole oats
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup chopped raw pecans
  • 1 cup chopped raw almonds
  • 1 cup Trader Joe’s “Golden Berry Blend” (golden raisins, cherries, cranberries, blueberries)

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

Extra, to taste:

  • Splash of vanilla extract (1 Tablespoon if I had to estimate)
  • Sprinkle of salt (about 1 tsp. but I’m not totally sure)

Bake at 300°F, stirring every 15 minutes, for 45 minutes. I accidentally overcooked this batch (for an hour, instead of 45 minutes) so the sunflower seeds got extra toasty (since they’re so small) which I’m not sure I love, so I think next time I would wait 15 minutes before adding them. Make sure to seal it in an airtight container so it doesn’t get soggy!
