Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300° F. 
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium or large bowl, toss together the almond slivers, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, and pecans.
  • In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.
  • Stir in the liquid by pouring it over the bowl of nuts and mixing thoroughly.
  • Press the mixture into the pan. It will resemble a large granola bar.
  • Bake until just lightly golden brown on top, about 35-40 minutes.
  • Allow the granola to cool. Once cooled, break it into pieces and store in an air-tight container.

Notes

You can add dried fruit or chocolate chips to the finished granola if you'd like, just make sure it's cooled first.
