1. Lightly crush the pecans then place in a bowl, add the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, oats, cinnamon, ginger and currants to the bowl and mix.
2. Melt the coconut oil and add to the dry ingredients then mix, add in the maple syrup and mix well so all the dry ingredients are covered.
3. Grease a large baking tray (you need one which is fairly deep) and press the mixture into the tin, it doesn't need to be packed to tight but you want it so it sticks together kind of like flapjack. Place in an oven preheated to gas mark 3 for 25-30 minutes until the granola is browned.
4. Remove with a fish slice and place the chunks into a bowl, the granola will break up which is what you want, ideally you want some biggish chunks to remain, you are looking for bite size pieces but you will get all size little bits too, this is what granola should look like. Allow the granola to cool in the bowl and then place in airtight contains ready to store.
