by Laura Norris

Ingredients:

IMG_0223.JPG

2 3/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1 cup pecans, roughly chopped

1/3 cup raw, shelled pumpkin seeds

1 cup unsweetened coconut chips

1 tablespoon sea salt or kosher salt (may use less)

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

1/3 cup Oliver Farm Pecan Oil or Pumpkin Oil

3/4 cup dried sour cherries

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 300°.  In a large bowl, mix together the oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, coconut chips, and salt.

In a small saucepan set over low heat, warm the sugar, maple syrup, and oil until the sugar has just dissolved. Remove from heat and pour over the oat mixture, stirring well to make sure all the dry ingredients are coated.

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, and spread the granola over it. Bake until dry and lightly golden, about 35-40 minutes, stirring a few times along the way.

Remove granola from oven, and mix in the dried sour cherries. Allow to cool before transferring to a storage container. Makes about 6 cups.
