My sister gave me a recipe for granola about 20 years ago. Over the years I adapted it by removing some ingredients and adding others.The pine nuts were inspired by a granola I ate at the Inn of the Anasazi in Santa Fe, NM. —Leslie_
about 8 cups
organic old fashioned oats
chopped or sliced almonds with skins
organic non-sweetened coconut
raisins &/or chopped dried apricots or dried cranberries
In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients
Mix oil and maple syrup and add to dry ingredients, mixing well.
Spread mixture in pan (cookie pan or roasting pan) and bake about 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes and then checking often to avoid burning. The granola is done when it is evenly browned.
Add dried fruit after the granola cools a bit. Store in a tightly covered container.
