Crispy, crunchy maple-sweetened granola clusters, filled with lots of dried cranberries and pecans!
Ingredients
  • 2 ½ cups Old Fashioned Oats (Gluten Free if needed)
  • ⅔ cup Chopped Pecans
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • ½ teaspoon Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil (measure in melted state)
  • ⅔ cup Dried Cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir to combine Oats, Pecans, Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg, and Salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, stir to combine Maple Syrup and Coconut Oil.
  4. Pour Syrup mixture over dry ingredients, and stir until everything is evenly coated.
  5. Divide the granola mixture between the 2 pans, and spread into a flat layer.
  6. Bake for 40-43 minutes, until golden, stirring halfway through.
  7. After removing from oven, immediately sprinkle Dried Cranberries over the granola, but do not touch or stir the granola! Allow granola to cool on the pan for 15-20 minutes (this will help granola to crisp up and form clusters), before touching.
  8. Store granola in a tightly sealed container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
  9. Makes about 4 ½ cups.
