Coconut Macaroon Granola (gluten free, dairy free)
be sure to buy gluten free oats if you have an allergy or severe intolerance
toasted slivered almonds
virgin coconut oil
pure maple syrup
pure vanilla extract
(or additional vanilla extract if you're not an almond fan)
generous pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix oats, coconut flakes, and almonds in a large mixing bowl.
In a second bowl, whisk remaining ingredients together, then pour over dry ingredients. Use spatula to combine.
Spread mixture evenly across two large jelly roll pans lined with parchment.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and slightly crispy, turning halfway through.
Allow to cool completely on pan before storing in a glass container. Granola will crisp even more as it cools.
Works great as a cereal, dry snack, or yogurt topping. Super cute for gifting and freezes well too!
