  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone liner.
  2. Combine brown sugar, maple syrup, oil, and salt in a bowl. Add oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and coconut. Mix well, making sure all ingredients are coated evenly.
  3. Pour onto prepared baking sheet and distribute in an even layer.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes lightly with the tines of a fork so mixture toasts evenly and granola is golden brown.
  5. Pour into a bowl and, while mixture is still hot, mix in currants. Cool. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

Best Granola ever, I love to play around with adding different dried fruits and nuts, my friends rave whenever I make this. (I add cinnamon too)

Very tasty, a little on the sweet side so next time I might try to reduce the amount of maple syrup. I'll definitely make it again.

this recipe is my favourite! I make double so it lasts longer and I eat it with yogurt and berries. instead of maple syrup, I put water to make it a little healthier. if you still want the sweet...

I've used various types of nuts. Couldn't find unsalted pumpkins seeds so used salted pumpkin seeds and did not add salt. Since making it quite a few times, I change the currants to chocolate ...

I skipped the currants, replaced the pumpkin seeds with sunflower, replaced the vegetable oil with coconut oil, and put it over yogurt and fruit as suggested. It was superb.

Loved this easy recipe. It makes a lot of granola.
