Homemade Maple Granola

image

I love granola. There is only so much bread you can eat every morning before you say ok I need something with a different texture. I used to buy just a box and find I’d go through it in a week. It had been a long time since I’ve made homemade granola, but now I think I will get back into it. It is so much cheaper to make at home and it is so easy. I got this recipe from Jessica Fisher’s Not Your Mother’s Freezer Recipes cookbook and she even mentioned getting the spin off from Ellie Krieger (one of my favorite recipe people!) Literally put all your ingredients together (except dried fruit which you add at the end) mix with maple syrup, then bake. I added some orange zest to the mix as well. The variations are endless, but I was happy with my mix of nuts, sunflower seeds, and cranberries. Add in generous dollops of vanilla yogurt and it is a tasty meal!  A definite must-try for the mornings!
