epic granola


2 1/2 cups oats
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (no preservatives)
3/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup walnuts (if tolerated)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 T coconut oil
1 t vanilla
1/4 t cinnamon (optional - try ceylon cinnamon)
1/8 t sea salt
dried mango without preservatives (optional, to taste)

Preheat oven to 300 F. Pour the oats, almonds, and walnuts (if using) onto a cookie sheet. In a small pot on low heat, mix together the maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt (just until coconut oil is liquified). Pour this liquid over the oats and nuts and mix with a flipper.

Bake for 20 minutes, stirring about every 10 minutes. Remove from oven and mix in the coconut and pumpkin seeds. Bake for another 10-15 minutes.

Remove from oven and transfer to a pyrex dish to cool, stirring every so often. If you wish, cut a few slices of dried mango (if tolerated) into smaller pieces and mix it in. Store in the fridge.
