It isn't very often that our kitchen is devoid of granola. It 's a family favourite staple. Allan (the hubby) always has a look of disbelief on his face if he goes to the cupboard and the granola jar is empty. It really is a rarity that that happens.
I make a few different granola recipes, but this one is our favourite. It has all the elements of a good granola: crunch, lots of nuts, seeds and flavour. it isn't too sweet and has just the right amount of spice to keep
Preheat oven to 200F
4 cups gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 to 1 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp sea salt
1 cup of coconut flakes or shredded coconut
1 cup chopped almonds or walnuts
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
Mix everything together in a large bowl. Spread on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 200F. Stir and bake another 20 to 25 minutes.
