GranDSCN5003ola is one of my very favourite things. I have it over yogurt, mixed into oats with yogurt or on its own with milk. The kids love it as a sweet topping on fruit or ice cream. It’s the best comfort food. Buying granola can be expensive, but making your own is easy and cost-effective. You control what goes into your homemade mix! If you don’t like raisins, leave them out. If you love pecans, add more in. The possibilities are endless. This recipe is basic and it makes a lot. Tailor it to what you love. I use rolled oats (the big proper ones), not quick cooking oats. I buy whole nuts and chop them up myself. Buy them chopped if you like! It will save you a job. I also use parchment paper on my baking sheets. It prevents the granola from sticking to the pan and it’s easier to just lift and slide it into a jar or container. Remember to cool your granola completely before adding any raisins, dried cranberries, dates, or whatever dried fruit you’re adding to your scrummy mix. Enjoy!

Homemade Maple and Nut Granola

3 cups oats
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
3/4 cups of desiccated coconut
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cups dried fruit, optional
Preheat oven to 120 degrees Celsius (250F). Mix oats, nuts, coconut, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add maple syrup and oil. Combine thoroughly. Spread equally over two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Place in oven for 60 minutes, stirring every 15-20 minutes to allow for the granola to brown evenly. Cool completely before adding dried fruit and placing in an airtight container.
