Make this healthy peanut butter granola, loaded with oatmeal, pecans, peanut butter, seeds, raisins, and a few chocolate chips for the fun of it. It's an easy recipe and perfect for breakfast or snacking!
Preheat oven to 300°F/150°C. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Make the flax egg and set it aside.
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. Stir in the flax egg.
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 prepared pans, distributing it equally across the pan. Use a spatula to press the granola down into the pan. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, until the granola is golden brown.
Remove from the oven and set it aside for 10 minutes to cool. Add the dried fruit and then break it apart into pieces.
Store in an airtight container.
