Lemony Gluten Free Granola

  1. Preheat oven

    Preheat oven to 325º. Place the oats in a large mixing bowl.

  2. Coat the oats

    Warm the honey, coconut oil, and molasses together until they are fluid and easy to pour. Add cinnamon, ginger, and salt to the liquids and stir to combine, then pour over the oats and stir thoroughly to coat the oats.

  3. Bake the oats

    Spread the oats evenly on the baking sheet and bake for 20-35 minutes on the middle shelf of the oven, stirring every 5 minutes until the oats just begin to bronze. Bake to your preference.

  4. Add sunflower and pumpkin seeds, and coconut

    In the last 3-5 minutes of baking, sprinkle the sunflower and pumpkin seeds and the coconut pieces on top of the oats and bake until the coconut pieces have just begun to
    brown on the edges.

  5. Mix in fruit and extracts

    Remove granola from the oven and transfer back into the mixing bowl. Add the fruit and extracts, toss well to combine. Cool and enjoy!
