  • 1/3 cup unsulfured molasses (not blackstrap)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together molasses, oil, cinnamon, and salt. Add oats, coconut, and pecans; stir gently with a rubber spatula until oats are completely coated. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and spread in an even layer. Bake, stirring occasionally, until oats are lightly browned, 25 to 30 minutes (watch carefully, as mixture burns easily). Let cool completely on sheet on a wire rack, 30 minutes.

    This recipe is delicious! It is a great way to use up items in the pantry and is economical. I also added dried cranberries. Next time I will use more cinnamon.
