An easy recipe to make the best homemade healthy granola. It's much cheaper than store-bought, naturally sweetened and so flavorful!
Preheat oven to 300 F / 150 C degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: oats, shredded coconut, nuts, cinnamon and salt.
Add the wet ingredients: maple syrup and coconut oil. Mix thoroughly until well combined and all the oats look wet.
Transfer on prepared baking sheet, spread the mixture into a 3/4"-thick layer (about 1.5/2 cm) and with a wooden spoon, press down the granola on the prepared baking sheet.
A thick layer and pressing down the granola is key to getting clusters!
If you prefer your granola without clusters, spread the mixture as much as possible and don't press it down.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
All ovens are different so start checking around 20-25 minutes to make sure it doesn't burn.
Remove from the oven, spread the dried fruits on top and let it cool completely.
DO NOT TOUCH the granola before it's completely cooled down. It's key to make it crunchy and clumpy!
When cool, break it into pieces and store in an air-tight container – ideally in the fridge to keep it extra crunchy.
