Seeded Pecan Granola

Seeded Pecan Granola

Maple-glazed pecans, coconut oil and a hint of spice bring big flavor to this crunchy, cluster-packed granola, adapted from the restaurant Jon & Vinny's in Los Angeles. If you don't have flaky sea salt, kosher salt is fine; just use slightly less (about 3/4 teaspoon, give or take).

  1. Step 1

    Heat oven to 375 degrees (or 350 degrees if you are using convection). Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Step 2

    In a small mixing bowl, toss pecans with 1/4 cup maple syrup. Set aside.
  3. Step 3

    In a separate medium-size bowl, combine oats, pepitas, sunflower seeds, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and oil with the remaining 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Spread oat mixture on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until the edges are just starting to turn golden. Remove pan from oven and use a fork to gently rake the edges in toward the center and the center out toward the edges. Return to oven and bake for 7 to 10 more minutes or until edges are golden, then repeat raking process.
  4. Step 4

    Sprinkle the maple-coated pecans over the top of the granola and bake for a final 7 to 10 minutes, or until the granola is evenly golden. Remove pan from oven, rake once more, and let cool completely. Store airtight at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
