Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dried shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar or jaggery or date syrup
  • 1/4 cup jaggery syrup or maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • handful of dried raisins or any other dried fruit of your choice
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or clarified butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven for 350 F.
  • In a bowl mix in rolled oats, coconut, sugar, slivered almonds, and salt.
  • Heat jaggery syrup, oil and vanilla extract for 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour it immediately over dry ingredients, combine until all the ingredients are coated well. Arrange on a large baking sheet and spread into a even layer
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the pan around, do not stir so you have chunky granola. Bake for another 3-4 minutes. It will be golden brown and fragrant.
  • Let cool completely. Add dried fruit to the pan while the granola is cooling.
  • Store it in an airtight container

Notes

  • when spreading on the pan, oats need to be a little crowded in the pan so they can stick together, and also toast evenly.
  • Possible variations:
    1. you can add coconut flakes,pecans and amp up the sweetness.
    2. Add chocolate chips after baking
    3. Spice up the granola with cinnamon and warming spices that you love - ground nutmeg, cloves, or ginger.
    4. If you want chunkier granola, do not stir while baking, and thickening the syrup for a while longer helps.
