vanilla almond granola


2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (no preservatives)
3/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 t organic pure vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt

Preheat oven to 300.  Spread the oats, coconut, and almonds on a baking sheet.  In a bowl, mix together the maple syrup and vanilla.  Pour maple syrup over oats, etc. and add a sprinkle of salt. Stir with a flipper until everything is well coated.

Bake for about 30 - 35 minutes, stirring with a flipper about every 5 -10 minutes.  When it's all looking lightly browned, you're done!

Remove from oven and transfer to a pyrex pan or glass container to cool, stirring once in a while. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.

Serve with unsweetened nut, rice or organic milk (or plain yogurt, if tolerated).  Add berries if you wish :).
