Salted Pecan Granola



Okay okay, I know. This isn’t the first time I’ve put up a granola recipe. Trust me though, this is the best one yet. Adding sea salt to the pecans is just well, magical. The whole house smelled like roasting nutty goodness and Christmas, which got me thinking about Fall and cooler weather. This led me to think about boots and fall outfits, which if off topic, but a good example of my thought processes, and a foreshadowing of an upcoming post.  Anyway, if you take 30 minutes out of your Sunday to make this, youll be happy when you have a delicious crunchy yogurt topper every morning, or 3 pm snack every afternoon.


Organic Rolled Oats-6 cups
Whole Pecans-2 cups
Unsweetened Coconut Flakes-1 cup
Amber Agave-1/2 cup
Cinnamon-1 tbsp
Coconut Oil-4 tbsp
Maldon Sea Salt-a pinch

Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Spray


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease pan with coconut oil spray. Mix together oats, pecans, coconut flakes, cinnamon. Spread in tray and dot the top of the mixture with dollops of coconut oil.  Sprinkle with salt, and place in oven. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, rotating, stirring mixture every 10 minutes. Remove from oven, salt once more, and let cool.
