3 cups rolled oats
1 cup (or a little more) unsweetened flaked coconut (I like Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup nuts (I use pecans, but whatever strikes your fancy)
brown sugar (a handful or so...1/4 cup?)
a bit of salt
a bit of nutmeg (or cinnamon, if you like)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup maple syrup (or honey)
Heat up your oven to 300 degrees. Oh, and you'll need a cookie sheet. Mine is nonstick, so I don't need to grease it (doesn't that sounds gross?), but the granola will be a bit sticky. Use your judgement. You'll figure it out.
Down to business:
Mix the oats, coconut, nuts, brown sugar, salt, and nutmeg together, roughly in that order (though it doesn't really matter--just think dry first, wet second).
|Nice and even.|

Basically, that's it. The granola stores for 2 or 3 weeks in a sealed container, but believe me, it never hangs around that long. Enjoy!
