  • Maple Cinnamon Granola Makes 6 cups:
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecan halves roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup unsulphured molasses
  • 3 Tbsp. light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Pancakes makes 12-15 pancakes
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • a few tablespoons butter for the skillet
  • maple syrup and fresh fruit for serving
  1. Maple Cinnamon Granola: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine first six ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl combine maple syrup, coconut oil and molasses. Microwave for about one minute . Remove from the microwave and mix with a spatula until all the ingredients are melted and smooth. Gently stir in the brown sugar and the vanilla. Pour over the oat mixture and mix until well moistened.
  4. Spread onto the baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature for at least an hour or more without stirring. If you don't stir you will have nice big clumps of granola goodness. (my favorite!) I like to let mine cool overnight on the tray so it crisps up really well. Store in airtight container.
  5. Pancakes: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and baking powder.
  6. In a large bowl, whisk together milk, oil and egg. Add dry ingredients and whisk just until combined, some small lumps are ok. Don't overmix.
  7. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add butter until melted. Spoon batter into skillet. Sprinkle a little granola on the top of each pancake. Cook until bottom begins to brown and you see a few bubbles on the top of each cake.
  8. Flip pancakes and cook until other side is golden brown. Remove from pan and keep warm until all pancake batter is done.
  9. Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit. Package remaining granola in small snack bags for the kids for their lunch boxes.
