Last Minute Maple Salted Granola

I decided to try Chrissy Teigen’s Salted Maple Granola a few weeks back. It’s so quick and easy and makes such a beautiful gift! It’s a little sweet but a little salty. And really good on top of plain greek yogurt or with berries!

Ingredients:

+ 3 c old-fashioned rolled oats

+ 1/2 c unsweetened finely shredded coconut

+ 1/2 c chopped pecans

+ 1/2 c sliced almonds

+ 1/4 c sunflower seeds

I omitted sunflower seeds, you could add them or any type of seeds or nuts

+ 1/2 c vegetable oil or melted coconut oil

I used coconut oil

+ 1/2 c maple syrup

+ 1/3 c packed light brown sugar

+ 2 tsp vanilla extract

+ 2 1/2 tsp kosher salt

+ 1 c chopped dried cherries

 

The result is simply beautiful and tasty granola

In a large bowl combine oats, coconut, pecans, almonds, and and seeds you may have added.

In a small bowl whisk together oil, maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt. Add to the oat mixture + toss together.

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the granola on the baking sheet.
