A favorite treat used and sold at The Miller’s Table Cafe at home at Maine Grains
Make this extra large batch to share with friends or stock the pantry. Gluten free, soy free and low in sugar.

Ingredients

  • 1 1⁄3 cup maple syrup

  • 1 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 8 cups Maine Grains Organic Rolled Oats

  • 2 cups chopped hazelnuts

  • 1 1⁄3 cup cocoa powder (see note below)

  • 8 tbsp ground flax seeds

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1⁄2 tsp salt

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Warm the maple syrup and the coconut oil until the coconut oil is melted.
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Spread on a cookie sheet that is either lightly sprayed with oil or lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake 20-25 minuets, stirring every 5-10 minutes to make sure it does not overcook.
  • Let cool on the cookie sheet, then store in an airtight jar.

Notes

  • At the Miller’s Table Cafe at Maine Grains we use ‘black cocoa’ making this granola taste like a cross between Nutella and Oreo cookies – but with far less sweet. Dutch cocoa, or any cocoa on hand will also work.
  • This granola is divine on Greek yogurt parfaits, atop ice cream – or all by itself!
