Pumpkin Seed-Fig Granola

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 11 cups

Hearty rye and spelt flakes complement the usual rolled oats in this granola, with warm autumnal notes from dried figs, cinnamon and pepitas. Prefer to use just oats? Feel free; use 6 cups total.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups (9-1/2 oz.) rolled oats (not steel-cut or quick)
  • 1-1/2 cups rolled rye flakes
  • 1-1/2 cups rolled spelt flakes
  • 1 cup shelled pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup toasted almond oil (for a lighter flavor, substitute a neutral oil like canola)
  • 2/3 cup agave nectar
  • 1 Tbs. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped dried figs

Preparation

  • Position racks in the top and bottom thirds of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F. Evenly spread the oats, rye, and spelt flakes on two large rimmed baking sheets. Bake, stirring once, until just golden, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a very large bowl.
  • Mix the pumpkin seeds, wheat germ, milk powder, sugar, cinnamon, and salt with the grains.
  • Heat the oil, agave nectar, and vanilla in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until bubbles begin to appear around the edge of the pan, about 4 minutes. Pour the oil mixture over the dry ingredients. Using two large spoons, gently mix and toss until the dry ingredients are evenly moistened.
  • Spread the mixture onto the two rimmed baking sheets and bake, tossing the granola and swapping and rotating the sheets halfway through, until golden brown and no longer sticky, 10 to 14 minutes.
  • While the granola is still hot, toss it with the dried figs, using 1/2 cup per sheet. Let cool to room temperature without disturbing. Using your hands, break up any large clumps of granola—you want pieces that range in size from almonds to peas. Store in airtight containers at room temperature in a cool, dry place for up to 3 months.

Make Ahead Tips
