Maple Granola

This healthful granola is great with yogurt or eaten straight out of the container!


3-1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup chopped almonds (optional)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 cup raisins, dried cranberries, and/or dried cherries


Heat oven to 225º. In a large bowl, combine oil, maple syrup, sesame seeds, coconut, oats, and almonds. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake until golden-brown, about 1½ hours; stir mixture so that it toasts evenly. Transfer warm toasted granola to a large bowl. Stir in dried fruits and let cool. Store in a tightly sealed container at room temperature.

Maple Granola

I'm a big fan of maple syrup and I use a granola recipe very similar to this. My recipe uses 1/2 maple syrup, 1/2 local honey. Try it! And maybe throw in a few chopped pecans.


Definitely making this!!
