5 cups quick oats (they work best)
1 1/2 cups oat bran
1 cup ground flax seed
handful of sliced almonds
handful of chopped pecans
1 cup of unsweetened coconut
1 cup of olive oil
1 cup of maple syrup
teaspoon real vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl combine oats, bran, flax, nuts, coconut, and cinnamon. Mix well with hands.
In a separate bowl, mix together olive oil, syrup, and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients. Mix everything very well so it's all coated.
Spread out on 2 baking sheets and bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let sit out at room temperature for awhile so it cools.
This is the best granola I have ever had, and actually keeps me going until lunch. Also makes a killer late night snack mixed with vanilla soy ice cream. Enjoy!
