  • ACTIVE:15 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME:50 MIN

Ingredients

  • Cornflake Crunch
  • 3 cups cornflakes
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter – melted
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dark brown sugar – packed
  • Granola
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups slivered almonds
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut chips
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar – packed
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 300°F. First, make the cornflake crunch: grab a baking sheet and line it with foil. Add the cornflakes and crush them up with your hands. Melt the butter in a small bowl, then stir in the brown sugar. Pour the mixture onto the cornflakes and toss to coat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, coconut, brown sugar, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Pour the wet mixture onto the dry ingredients, then stir to combine. Pour onto a separate foil lined baking sheet and pop both trays into the oven. Bake the cornflake crunch until golden, about 15 min. Bake the granola for 35-40 min, stirring a few times along the way.
  3. Let both cool off, mix them together, then store in a big container or Ziploc.
