  • 1.5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup unsalted pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground cloves, optional
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • 1/8 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, grated carrots, pecans, walnuts, cinnamon, salt, ginger, nutmeg and cloves (optional). In a separate small bowl mix together the maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Pour the maple syrup mixture into the bowl with the oats and carrots, and toss until well combined.
  3. Spread the mixture out evenly on the lined baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, rotating the pan and stirring the granola halfway through the baking time. Remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool until the granola reaches room temperature. Then add raisins and toss to combine. Store the granola in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
