Cinnamon Pecan Granola
Cinnamon Pecan Granola is my "go-to" recipe. It's not too sweet, has a hint of orange and pairs so well with fresh fruit, yogurt and ice cream if you are so inclined.
- 5 cups oats old fashioned rolled
- 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup coconut oil liquid measure (OK to substitute canola or sunflower oil)
- 1/2 cup powdered instant nonfat milk
- zest of 1 orange
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Combine oats and nuts in a large bowl.
Combine salt, cinnamon, brown sugar, orange juice, coconut oil and powdered milk in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat until the mixture is well combined and smooth.
Pour cinnamon mixture over oats and nuts. Stir to combine (make sure oats are well coated).
Spread mixture on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 40-45 minutes. Stir every 10-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Store in tightly covered container.
