Make Your Own Granola

Inspiration for this recipe comes from Kath’s Maple Pecan Granola

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 c oat bran
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp canola oil
2 tbsp Grade A REAL maple syrup
1/2 cup chopped pecans, walnuts or almonds
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Melt butter in a bowl, stir in canola oil, maple syrup and salt. Stir in oats, oat bran and nuts until well coated. Spread mixture on a cookie sheet and bake at 300 for 20 minutes. Toss granola around a bit with a spatula and then put back in the oven for an additional 5 – 10 minutes.

I make this regularly. There are a million different ways you could go with this… dried fruits, different nuts, different sweeteners like agave nectar, brown sugar… I love that it’s cheaper than buying packaged granola and is also without added preservatives, flavors, etc. I love to add granola to cereal, a fun crunchy topping for greek yogurt with fruit, sprinkle some on top of a smoothie… good stuff! This is calorie dense so use in moderation. Store in an air tight container at room temp.
