S'wonderful Cocoa & Coconut Granola

Great alone as a snack, or as cereal in milk!






~Ingredients~-- notice ***NO OIL***, Kayro Syrup makes the oats good and crunchy without all the extra added fat!  **Woot!  Woot!**
~Coating~
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup Kayro syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa

~Cereal~
5 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1 Cup shredded coconut

*OPTIONAL Add-ins*
1/2 cup chopped pecans 
1/4 cup flax seeds

~Directions~1.Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F . Line large baking sheet with aluminum foil sprayed well with non-stick cooking spray. 2. Combine the oats and flax seeds in a large bowl. 3. Mix together the coating ingredients in small microwave safe bowl. Heat together for 1 minute. Stir well, then pour over the oat mixture. 4. Add nuts and and coconut. Mix together well. I usually have to use my hand to get everything rolled around and coated evenly.5. Spread the mixture out evenly on the baking sheet. 6. Bake in the preheated oven until crispy and toasted, about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
