Cooking at a low temperature will help ensure the granola evenly browns. Too high and the edges of the granola will burn. Tossing regularly also helps to achieve a golden and crunchy granola.
Sprinkle crunchy granola over fruit smoothie bowls.
Great sprinkled over ice cream or stewed fruit.
For a milk/dairy free option - use a plant-based milk alternative such as soy or almond milk, yoghurt or ice-cream.
Add a cup of your favourite dried fruit - cranberries, sultas, raisins, chopped apricots, chopped dates will all work well.
Replace coconut oil with vegetable oil if wished - It won-t be necessary to heat the oil before mixing in the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
