Our friend Julia who is a woman of many talents. She spent a year at culinary school although not in that world she makes a mean granola. I got the recipe and made it this past weekend. It is so much better than any other granola out there.
I doubled the recipe and added in 1 cup of dried cranberries (you could add in any kind of dried fruit) and I used pecans.
MAMA J’S GRANOLA
-preheat over 300 deg
-combine in a big bowl: 3 c. raw oats, 1 c. raw pumpkin seed, 1 c. raw sunflower seed, 1 c. unsweetened shredded coconut, 1 c. chopped nuts (I like pecans but can be walnuts or whatever really), 3/4 c. maple syrup, 1/2 c. coconut sugar (or brown sugar), 1/2 c. EVOO, 1 tsp salt.
-spread evenly in a thin layer on multiple baking sheets (I use two biggies)
-pull out every 10 min to turn granola with a spoon and spread around so it doesn’t get burned in places
-Bake until golden brown, about 40 min.
-Pour back into a clean bowl and dump in 1 tbsp kosher salt.
