I have been on a huge yogurt kick lately. HUGE. I tend to go overboard with food, eat too much of it, and then never want it again. In hopes of that not happening, I made this granola to give a nice twist to my yogurt. And it did just that! I love how this granola is simple and delicious. I did swap dried cranberries for raisins since raisins are basically the one thing I won’t eat. I think I used to eat them growing up…… (maybe I overdid raisins as well?)
This recipe is a great way to use up whatever nuts and dried fruits you have on hand. There are no refined sugars in this recipe, just delicious maple syrup to sweeten it up.
Once you make this granola you will never want to buy granola again.
1.5 cups oats
1/4 cup unsalted almonds, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup unsalted walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
4 Tbsp. maple syrup (or 3 Tbsp maple syrup & 1 Tbsp honey)
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of nutmeg
1/4 cup raisins dried cranberries
Preheat the oven to 300 and spray a large baking sheet with cooking oil.
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients, mixing well to be sure everything is coated with the maple syrup. Spread the mixture onto the prepared sheet and bake for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Let cool completely before storing.
