Have you ever made your own granola before? I made my own granola yesterday and it was awesome! It really doesn’t get much easier than this. I used pecans for the nuts and I used half the amount of maple syrup because I ran out. Still good!
(Mayim’s Vegan Table, Mayim Bialik)
Makes 5 cups granola
Nonstick Cooking Spray
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup almonds, pecans or your favorite nuts chopped (I used pecans)
1 cup dried fruit (any combination or cranberries, golden raisins, apricots, dates, cherries, and blueberries)- I used dates
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup maple syrup (I used 1/2 cup)
1. Preheat oven to 325F. Spray a large nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. Mix the remaining ingredients except the dried fruit, together in a large bowl.
Transfer to the baking sheet.
3. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until the granola starts to brown, stirring once halfway through the baking time.
4. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on the baking sheet. Mix in the dried fruit.
