There’s a time for healthy recipes, and there’s a time for recipes that are a little more sweet and special. This is one of those, and let me tell you – it’s a good one! I made this granola for some friend gifts this year, to go with some handmade mugs and bowls. So without further ado…a granola recipe for you!
3 cups oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup maple syrup
4+ teaspoons vanilla (or a bit more!)
scant 1/2 cup oil (you could probably use coconut if you wanted – I bet that would be good!)
nuts of your choice – I added a few handfuls of walnuts and the leftover sunflower seeds from the bottom of a trail mix bag
Mix ingredients (nuts included) together. Grease a baking pan (one with sides). Pour granola mixture in and press down (this is so that you get clumps). Bake for 30-40 minutes at 325. Once finished cooking, let sit about 5 minutes and then break up granola into clumps. Stir in dried fruit if you want – dried cranberries, raisins, apples – whatever you like. Enjoy!
