I grabbed the base of this recipe from completelydelicious.com, going to make some when my store-bought brand runs out.
Yield: About 4 cups
Use this recipe to create your own granola. The possibilities are endless, get creative!
2 cups (180 grams) old-fashioned oats (Not quick/1 minute)
1/4 cup sweetener (maple syrup, honey)
1/4 cup EVOO
1 - 2 cups of dried fruit, seeds or chopped chocolate
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon spice such as cinnamon, ginger, pumpkin pie spice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, any other dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine the oil, extracts, and liquid sweetener, if using. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly so that everything is moistened.
Spread out on a large sheet pan and bake until golden, 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Let cool.
Store granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to several weeks.
*For clumpy granola, increase the oil/butter and sweetener to 1/3 cup each and do not stir during baking. Break into clumps after granola has cooled.
*Add dried fruit during the last 10 minutes of baking. Do not add chocolate until granola has cooled.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
