Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup salted peanuts

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 8" x 8" square pan with parchment paper. In a bowl mix together the oats, coconut, almonds, chocolate chips, raisins, cranberries and peanuts. Pour in the oil and maple syrup and mix until the ingredients are well coated. Add the granola mixture to the pan and press into the corners using a wooden spoon. Bake until the granola bars have turned golden brown on top, about 30 minutes.
  • Allow the pan of granola bars to cool completely then refrigerate until set. Remove the parchment from the pan and slice the granola into 8 large bars or 16 squares.
