Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a silicone liner.
  2. Combine brown sugar, maple syrup, oil, and salt in a bowl. Add oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and coconut. Mix well, making sure all ingredients are coated evenly.
  3. Pour onto prepared baking sheet and distribute in an even layer.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes lightly with the tines of a fork so mixture toasts evenly and granola is golden brown.
  5. Pour into a bowl and, while mixture is still hot, mix in currants. Cool. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

My whole family really liked it BUT, we changed a whole lot. I am sure it tastes great as is. But we are trying to cut out all refined sugar and vegetable oils. so I substituted a banana and coconut oil. Smelled like banana nut bread while baking and had excellent flavor. We ate almost all of it in a day so now I am making a double batch today (not even 24 hours since the last batch)

I did not care for this recipe.

Delicious, simple and quick to make. Wow, I have not bought store-made cereal since discovering this recipe. I double the recipe because it goes really fast and eliminate the sugar because it doesn't really need it. Sooo good!

Very tasty, a little on the sweet side so next time I might try to reduce the amount of maple syrup. I'll definitely make it again.

Best Granola ever, I love to play around with adding different dried fruits and nuts, my friends rave whenever I make this. (I add cinnamon too)

I was shocked at how good this recipe was when I Meade it minus the nuts and minus the fruit. The flavor was great. I actually doubled the ingredients except for the sugar, in addition to omitting the nuts and fruit. I cooked it in 2 trays and it was done in under and hour. I'm sure the original recipe was fantastic but I needed to bring it to a party where nut allergies are a problem. Overall great recipe.

Great, flexible recipe. I actually think it has less sweetener than most, which is a plus. I am going to try to cut down on the brown sugar next time to see if it is still good with less sugar...
