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.
