I make my own granola. It's so easy to do, you can add in what you like and your house smells so good while it's baking. I usually make the same recipe, with maybe a few different add ins but I found this in the newest Fraiche Food cookbook so I thought I'd give it a try. I did change a few things to go with what I had in my pantry and I cut the recipe in half. I found the taste really good and ease of baking was great but my only concern was the added brown sugar. I don't like to add more sugar than necessary in my granola but I'm always open to something different. The added sweetness was delish and it's a great snack by the handful or on your yoghurt or smoothie bowls. Would I make it again? You bet, but I might be looking for a different kind of sweetner next time I make this.

Let's get to it . . .


Into a bowl add in
2 1/2 c. oats
1 c. sliced, raw almonds
1 c. raw pecan pieces
1/2 tbsp. cinnamon

In a separate bowl, mix together
scant 2/3 c. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. maple syrup
1/8 c. b. sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix the wet into the dry.

Spread onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, stirring 1/2 way thru.

Let cool, store in an airtight container and . . .
