Maple Granola

April 12, 2010


This recipe is adapted from a recipe on Martha Stewart Living in Feb 2009. I’ve always made homemade granola bars, but this is the best recipe I’ve ever had! I find it delicious with my yogurt and fruits. For the recipe, I prefer to use almonds compared to other nuts, but that’s up to your preference. Also for the fruits, I try to use a mixture of all three different dried fruits. Hope you all enjoy!

Recipe:

(Makes 7 cups)

3 cups rolled oats
1 cup dried sweetened coconut chips
1 cups pecans, walnuts or almonds, chopped
1/2 cup dried banana chips, chopped
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup raisins, craisins or golden raisins, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 300°.
2. Mix together oats, coconut, nuts, banana chips, syrup, oil, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon in a 9×13” pan.


3. Spread the granola in an even layer.
4. Bake, stirring every 10 minutes, for 40 minutes.
5. Add the raisins, and bake for 10 minutes more.
6. Let cool
