Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 13x17-inch baking dish with parchment paper.

  • Combine oats, pecan halves, coconut flakes, and flax seeds in the prepared baking dish; mix well.

  • Combine honey, white sugar, coconut oil, and salt in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high until mixture starts to bubble, 2 to 3 minutes. Whisk until honey and coconut oil are well-combined. Stir in vanilla extract.

  • Pour honey mixture over oat mixture in the baking dish; stir until evenly distributed.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, until oats are a deep golden brown, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Allow to cool, about 1 hour. Break oat clusters apart before serving.

Cook's Note:

Watch the honey mixture closely in the microwave to make sure it does not boil over the sides of the bowl.

5.8.20 For most home cooks, 96 servings is too much, so I scaled this down to 6 servings to see if it was something that I was going to like. I often eat yogurt for breakfast, and typically top it with a spoonful of granola. I put the pan into a 375ºF oven, and set the timer for 30 minutes to do my first cooking check. I wasn’t in the kitchen, but at 20 minutes, I smelled something burning in the house. Sure enough, opened the oven door, and found not Dark Honey Pecan Granola, but Burned Honey Pecan Granola. Smoke everywhere, I’m surprised that the smoke alarm didn’t go off. I fully expected that this wouldn’t take 1 hour 15 minutes to bake scaling down from 96 to 6, but certainly didn’t expect this to happen at less than 20 minutes. Could there be a typo on the oven temperature? I don’t know what else would have made this happen. Unfortunately, this was a total loss today, completely inedible. Read More
