This recipe for homemade coconut and cherry granola is so good. It really is one of the best granola batches I have ever made - and I make a lot.
- 300 g jumbo rolled oats
- 50 g coconut flakes
- 100 g pecan nuts chopped or broken up
- 100 g sunflower or pumpkin seeds
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 100 ml coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 100 ml maple syrup
- 100 g dried cherries
Pre-heat the oven to 120°C (fan)/140°C/gas mark 1 and cover two baking trays with greaseproof baking paper.
Place 300g jumbo oats, 50g coconut flakes, 100g chopped pecan nuts, 100g sunflower or pumpkin seeds and 1 tsp ground cinnamon into a large mixing bowl.
Gently heat 100ml coconut oil in a small saucepan over a low heat. Allow to cool a little then add 100ml maple syrup and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Stir the melted coconut oil mixture through the dry ingredients until the oats are all well coated. Spread out over the two baking trays and bake for 40 minutes, stirring halfway.
Allow to cool then add the dried cherries. Store in an airtight container.
