Granola is one of those foods that is perfect for so many things: breakfast, lunch, snacks or desserts. This granola is a packed with vitamins, protein and flavour.
Preheat the oven to 300°F, with the racks in the top and bottom thirds.
Combine the oats, walnuts, coconut, salt, currants and orange zest in a large mixing bowl. Heat the butter over low heat and stir in the maple syrup. Whisk until throughly combined and then pour over the oat mixture. Stir until everything is well coated, at least 30 seconds. Divide mixture equally between two rimmed baking sheets and spread into thin layer.
Bake, stirring occasionally for 40-50 minutes or until granola is toasty and deeply golden. You may want to rotate pans once to ensure even baking
Remove from the oven and press down on the granola with a metal spatula-you'll get more clumps that way! Let cool completely and store in an airtight container at pom temperature.
