No-Stir Granola

Ever get into a breakfast rut?

I do sometimes. I love breakfast, but I like to mix it up once in a while with something different on weekday mornings.

The beauty of this recipe is that it could easily be eaten for breakfast, or as a tasty snack any old time.

Oh yes, I made this over the weekend and have been noshing on it a piece at a time. My hands can’t seem to stay away from that tupperware container with the granola in it!

This is a hearty granola that can be baked on a rimmed baking sheet, with no need to stir it during the baking time. The result is a crunchy granola that you break apart once it’s cooled.

(Other granola recipes, like this one I posted a couple of years ago, has you stirring it periodically.)

Here’s the recipe that I followed to make this nice crispy treat:

1/3 C maple syrup

1/3 C brown sugar

3 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 C vegetable oil

3 C rolled oats

1 1/2 C nuts

1/2 C coconut

2 C dried fruit

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick spray. Spread mixed granola out onto sheet. Bake at 325 F for 30-40 minutes. Once this is cool, break apart and place pieces in an airtight container. Eat by itself or covered with milk.
