Sherry's Granola

We've always just purchased granola. 
It's something I've never really thought to make on my own... Until I tried Sherry Erickson's (She's a really amazing mother and friend to our family) granola.
  Ummmmm.....YES, I needed the recipe!
4 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut (if you have a WINCO store, that's the best coconut to use that's in the bulk bin)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup coconut oil (bring to a liquid state)
1/2 cup real/pure maple syrup 
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Combine the dry ingredients in a medium/large mixing bowl.
(Oats, pecans, almonds, coconut, salt, sugar and cinnamon)
Mix together.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
(Coconut oil and Maple syrup)
Pour over the dry ingredients and mix well.
Spread it ALL onto a cookie sheet.
Bake at 300 degrees for 40 min.
Stirring after every 10 min.
...and then it's ready to be consumed!
My kids LOVE this with almond milk for breakfast.
This can also be used as a topping over Greek yogurt or ice cream (hey now....WHY NOT?)
Recipe courtesy of Sherry Erickson, a great friend and wonderful mother.
