Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 ½ -2 tsp ground dried ginger (use 2 tsp if you like a stronger ginger flavour)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups nuts (I used a mix of pecans, almonds and walnuts)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, spices, and salt.
  • Next, add in the melted coconut oil, molasses, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix well then fold in the mixed nuts.
  • Add the granola to the lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, remove and mix around the granola in order to cook evenly. Return to the oven for an additional 8-10 minutes until the granola is slightly golden and the nuts look toasted.
  • Let cool completely on the baking tray. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Enjoy!

Notes

Makes about 6-8 servings for a meal, more for snacking.
