  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, hulled
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds, hulled
  • 1 cup coconut chips
  • 1 1/4 cup raw pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup, preferably Grade A

    This is one of our favorite granolas! I get requests all the time to make it for brunches. Great snack anytime of day.

    We love this granola! I increased the amount of oats to 4 cups, and reduced the maple syrup to 1/2 cup and the olive oil to 1/3 cup. Also eliminated the brown sugar and substituted 1/4 cup of Truvia Baking Blend. The result is pretty much perfect. I also add dried cherries after the granola is baked and cooled. I make it the minute it runs out!

    Super good. I make this recipe almost every week (er, yes, we eat that much granola) with the following changes:
    1/4 c olive oil
    no brown sugar
    almonds instead of pecans

    I also line the baking sheet with parchment to prevent sticking.

    Where are the other 2 recipes that she had on the show? I would like to make the Pistachio and Sour Cherry one, but don't know how much of each to put in. Can you post that recipe also, please?
