Makes: 3-4 cups of huge granola chunks

  • 2 cups toasted rice square cereal (like rice chex)
  • 3/4 cup quick-cook oats
  • 1/3 cup pecan pieces
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • generous dash of salt
  1. Place the rice squares, the quick oats, and the pecan pieces in a bowl and stir them up.
  2. In a small microwaveable container, place the maple syrup, the coconut oil, the brown sugar, the cinnamon, and the salt. Microwave until the coconut oil is melted, about 30 seconds to 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds. Watch closely so it doesn't boil over.
  3. Pour the maple mix over the cereal mix and stir well to coat.
  4. Press the mix into a parchment lined 8 x 8 glass pan. Make sure that the quick cook oats are distributed evenly in the pan. This is key to the big chunks.
  5. Microwave the whole thing for 2 minutes
  6. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes, until hardened.
  7. Using a gentle rocking motion, cut into 4 squares, and then cut each square into 2 triangles. You'll end up with mostly large chunks, a few smaller chucks, and some crumbles. Enjoy and serve with love
