I have to share this granola recipe with you! It is SOOOOO tasty it’s not even funny!
I found the recipe in Eating Well Magazine, which I also LOVE. I adapted it to suit my tastes. This granola is awesome when mixed with vanilla yogurt for breakfast or a mid-day snack. It is so good you just have to try it!
Maple Nut Granola
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup dried berry fruit mix
1/2 cup golden raisins
Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
Combine oats, nuts, and brown sugar together in a large bowl. In a medium bowl combine: syrup, water and oil. Mix well. Pour syrup mixture over the oat-nut mixture. Stir until well combined and the mixture is all wet. Spread out the mixture onto a large roasting pan or baking sheet.
Bake in the 275 degree oven for 45 minutes. Take the pan out and stir the granola mixture. Then return to the oven to bake for another 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Stir in the dried berries and golden raisins and mix well. Allow granola to cool to room temp before transferring to storage container.
The granola can be stored for up to 2 weeks. Serving size is 1/2 cup.
