Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone liner.

  • 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.

  • Pour onto prepared baking sheet and distribute in an even layer.

  • 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.

  • Pour into a bowl and, while mixture is still hot, mix in currants. Cool. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

My whole family really liked it BUT we changed a whole lot. I am sure it tastes great as is. But we are trying to cut out all refined sugar and vegetable oils. so I substituted a banana and coconut oil. Smelled like banana nut bread while baking and had excellent flavor. We ate almost all of it in a day so now I am making a double batch today (not even 24 hours since the last batch) Read More

Me and Chef John have a difference of opinion on what the finished product should be. I guess he was making a loose granola that could only be used as a topping. While I was looking for a granola that would set into big pieces that could be grabbed as a snack to go. When I realized this granola was not setting in the oven I started topping with honey and then light corn syrup when the honey ran out. I added enough to get the effect but I will go back to my old recipe. Also, I always bake with the dried fruit mixed in, I actually like it better. The fruit plumps and sticks to the oat mixture when you bake it in. Read More

Delicious simple and quick to make. Wow I have not bought store-made cereal since discovering this recipe. I double the recipe because it goes really fast and eliminate the sugar because it doesn't really need it. Sooo good! Read More

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. Read More

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 sweetness from the syrup half of each is also good enough. the recipe is a much healthier alternative compared to the granola you buy in stores. I also add sunflower seeds and cranberries because my brother is allergic to all nuts. I love this recipe and so does my family. Read More
