Toasted Coconut and Pumpkin Seed Granola

Yield 5 cups

Free of: gluten and top 8 allergens.

Homemade granola couldn't be easier than with this delicious healthy recipe. This breakfast and snack food can also be used as a topping for various pastries and desserts.

 

Ingredients

1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut, such as Bob's Red Mill

2 cups gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats, such as Bob's Red Mill

1 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds (can replace with pumpkin seeds)

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp Kosher salt

2 tbsp grapeseed oil

1/4 cup maple syrup or honey

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup golden raisins

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Line a 12x17-inch baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Evenly spread coconut flakes on the sheet and toast until lightly browned, approximately 4-6 minutes. Toasting time depends on oven. Remove from oven and set aside to cool, leaving oven on.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cinnamon and salt. 
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together oil and maple syrup or honey. Drizzle into oat mixture and toss until oat mixture is well coated.
  4. Spread mixture onto a lined 12x17-inch baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, approximately 20 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool completely, without stirring.
  6. In a large bowl, add cooled oat mixture, toasted coconut, cranberries and raisins. Toss gently and mix until evenly distributed. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. 

Notes

We like to store granola in a large mason jar. We found that storing for several days in a ziplock bag will not keep the granola at its peak of freshness.
