Ingredients

  • 6 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 cup additional nuts pistachio, cashew, almonds, etc,

  • ½ cup syrup sweetener maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine the oats, pecans, additional nuts, and seeds in a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl combine the syrup, peanut butter, and coconut oil. Stir to combine. Heat this in the microwave in 11-second increments until the mixture is smooth enough to spread.
  • Pour the Peanut Butter Syrup mixture over the oat mixture. Stir, ensuring all the oatmeal and nuts are coated.
  • Pour the sticky granola mixture onto your prepared pans, distributing it equally across the pan. Place in the even and bake for 10 minutes. Remove both pans from the oven and stir. Return them to the oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes, until the granola is golden brown.
