Ginger-Orange Granola


  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (I used GF)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2/3 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • couple tablespoons sesame seeds
  • couple tablespoons hemp hearts, ground flax seeds or chia seeds
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • zest of 1 – 2 oranges, chopped fine or left as is
  • 2/3 – 3/4 cups pure maple syrup
  • coconut oil, to grease

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add in your maple syrup and mix well to coat. On a greased rimmed cookie sheet, lay granola in a single layer. You may need to use 2 rimmed sheets. Place sheets in oven and cook for 30 – 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so to ensure even toasting.

Once done, remove from oven, let cool completely, store in an air tight container for up to a month.

Let this be a template, add/subtract anything you like. If you’re missing an ingredient you may add extra of something else you do have on hand. I like lots of zest and added the zest of 2 oranges.
