Serves: 5 cups granola
Ingredients
  • 3 cups oats (not instant)
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed (flax meal)
  • 1 cup roughly chopped pecans
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, warmed up until it is a liquid
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 2 oz dark chocolate, cut into bite-sized chunks
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and butter or oil a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, flaxseed, pecans, and cinnamon.
  3. Pour in the maple syrup and coconut oil and stir until everything is coated. Spread the mixture out onto the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the oats are golden brown.
  4. Once the granola has cooled, stir in the dried cherries and chopped chocolate. The granola will keep in a sealed container for at least a week.
