- 3 cups old-fashioned oats
- 2 cups unsweetened coconut chips
- 1 cup chopped dried apricots (6 ounces)

Arrange the racks in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Toss the oats, coconut chips, apricots and pecans in a large bowl. Whisk together the brown sugar, canola oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a second bowl and drizzle over the oat mixture. Stir well so everything is evenly coated. Use your hands to toss and make sure every piece of oat is covered.
Spread the mixture in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until golden and brown, 15 minutes, rotating the baking sheet tray halfway through baking and stirring the granola with a spoon so it will cook evenly. Remove from the oven and add to a large bowl so it will stop cooking. Let cool before serving.
