In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 300', and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the oats, coconut, chia seeds and nuts together in a large mixing bowl.
In a small pan, or in a large microwave safe measuring cup or bowl, add the maple syrup, brown sugar, coconut oil, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, or mix well and microwave on medium power for 2 minutes, until all the ingredients are melted and mixed well.
Pour the syrup over the oats mixture and stir well with a spatula.
Spread the granola mixture evenly onto the parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 15, until the granola is toasted and the coconut is browned.
