What To Make For Breakfast Tomorrow? Maple-Nut Granola

Ingredients

  • 1 + 3/4 cup QUICK OATS
  • 1 + 1/2 cups ROLLED OATS
  • 1/2 cup RAW PECANS
  • 1/2 cup RAW ALMONDS, ROUGHLY CHOPPED
  • 1/2 cup EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
  • 1/2 cup MAPLE SYRUP
  • 1/2 tsp. SEA SALT

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.
  3. Spread mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  4. When top side is browned, remove tray and gently flip over granola with a spatula, a little at a time, trying not to break it up too much. Return tray to oven to brown other side (approximately 5 more minutes).
  5. Remove from oven and let cool completely (as the granola cools, it will get harder and form clusters).
  6. Break up the granola and store in a sealed container at room temperature.

Vary the recipe!

* You can use rolled oats, quick oats, or a variety of the two. Using both will provide a variety of textures.

* You can substitute other nuts or seeds and add dried fruit to add more fiber. So many options!
