Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans optional
  • 1 cup coconut flakes

Syrup Mix

  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp pure almond extract
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a half sheet pan with parchment paper, or a silicone baking mat. Set aside. 
  • Add the rolled oats, almonds, pecans, and coconut flakes to a large mixing bowl. Toss everything together to combine. Set this aside while you make the honey-almond syrup.

Mix the Honey-Almond Syrup

  • In a smaller, separate mixing bowl, whisk together the salt, ginger, cinnamon, lemon juice, almond extract, honey, and oil to combine.

Toss, Smooth, and Bake (x 4)

  • Once your honey-almond syrup is mixed well, pour it over the oat-nut mixture in the larger bowl. Use a rubber spatula to toss the oat-nut mixture completely in the honey-almond syrup.
  • Pour the granola mixture onto the prepared sheet pan and use the rubber spatula to smooth it into an even layer. Bake the granola for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and toss the granola. Smooth it out into an even layer and bake for an additional 15 minutes. 
  • Pull the pan out of the oven and toss, smooth, and bake for another 15 minutes. Then repeat this step once more until the granola is a golden brown color and is crunchy.
  • Once the granola has finished baking, remove it from the oven and allow it cool (on the pan) completely. Once cool, break the granola into bite-sized pieces and store in an airtight container in the pantry. 

Notes

  • This granola will keep, in an air-tight container in the pantry, for 1 month. 
  • Stir into yogurt or smoothies, or top ice cream, or oatmeal with it.
