Nana’s Granola for a Crowd

The only really important ingredients are oats and oil which makes the oats crisp up in the oven. The Quaker Large Flake Oats bag is easy as it contains 12 cups, or you can make this certified gluten free using gluten free oats. We use either coconut oil or high heat approved (Chosen Foods) avocado oil. You can vary this recipe by changing up the spices or adding dried fruit, and by adding other chopped nuts or seeds such as hemp seeds. Also, as the level of sweetness is personal you can adjust the maple syrup amount or use honey instead. As you start to eat less sugar, your taste buds will start to like less sweet foods!
