Pecan and Vanilla Bean Granola

Processed with VSCOcam with s2 presetI love the flexibility of summer which allows us to go where we want or stay put if we desire to put up our feet a little longer.  I’ve loved the healing and purposeful rest that I was able to experience this summer.  The last few years have been rough on my body.  The rest was necessary and appreciated.  Now that Fall is only a few weeks away, I am ready to embrace this new season, where relaxation gives way to routine and pattern.  For me, the routine brings some of my favorite weekly food preparations.  Inspired by the Kinfolk Cookbook, this week I chose to get back in the granola game…

Pecan & Vanilla Bean Granola

3 cups oats 1 cup pecans (or any nut)

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut, shredded

1/2 cup flax seeds

1/3 cup maple syrup

1/3 cup melted ghee or coconut oil

1/4 cup orange juice

2 teaspoons vanilla paste or extract

Preheat oven to 300. Combine all ingredients and spread on a baking sheet lines with parchment. Bake and stir every 15 minutes until the granola feels dry, about 45 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
