Nutty Granola

Yield: Yields 4 1/2 cups.

Servings: 9

You can’t buy granola this good, and it couldn’t be simpler to make. All the flavors come through crisp and clear: crunchy toasted nuts, chewy oats, and caramelized raisins perfectly sweetened with the unmistakable flavor of real maple syrup and humming with cinnamon.

  • Preheat the oven to 300°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

    In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients, mixing well to coat everything with the maple syrup. Spread on the baking sheet and bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.

    Transfer the sheet to a wire rack and let cool completely. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for about 2 weeks.

    Best granola my family's ever tasted. Love the nuts. I've substituted in hazelnuts and date pieces. Easy to prepare, but difficult to keep on hand, it's so good.

    I use this recipe as the basis for my daily granola, but for some reason she has omitted any oil. I whisk two tablespoons canola oil into the maple syrup before mixing it into the oats. I use more dried fruit than is called for here and more oats as well. It's a good starting point for your own custom mix.
