Coconut Pecan Granola
Firstly, to make Coconut Pecan Granola, toss together all of the ingredients and spread onto a large baking sheet. If you don’t have a very large baking sheet, split the recipe between two baking sheets, rotating in the oven as you bake it.
Then, just bake low and slow at 250 for 75 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Additionally, if you are using more than on baking sheet, rotate the baking sheets in the oven every time you stop to stir the granola. This will ensure that everything cooks evenly.
Moreover, this granola keeps beautifully. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a month. Serve on yogurt, fruit, or eat on its own. Enjoy!
Try different variations to this granola recipe by adding in raisins or cranberries after cooking, or substituting whatever nuts you have on hand. I have made this with almonds and walnuts both and had excellent results. Please comment and rate below if you try this recipe!
