Can be used to top ice cream or other desserts.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This granola has great flavor and just the right amount of crunchiness. It would be great added to some yogurt or just by itself. If you want to be a little bad, I bet it would be great on some ice cream too. The Test Kitchen
6 cold fashioned rolled oats
1 calmonds, chopped
1 cwalnuts, chopped
1 craw, unsalted pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
1/2 cmaple syrup
6 Tbspcanola oil or coconut oil
1 tspground cinnamon
1 tsppure vanilla extract
How to Make Elaine's Homemade Healthy Granola
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a roasting pan or large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine oats, almonds, walnuts and pepitas in a large bowl. Whisk oil, maple syrup, honey, cinnamon, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl until blended. (Measure the oil first, then use the residue in the cup to grease the measuring cups for the maple syrup and honey.)
Pour over the oat mixture and toss to coat. Spread the mixture in the prepared pan.
- Bake, stirring every 10 to 15 minutes, until lightly and evenly browned and starting to dry out, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Do not leave the granola unattended during this time. It can overcook very easily if not stirred regularly.
- When it is lightly and evenly browned throughout remove from oven and cool completely in the pan. When cool it can be stored for future use.
