Happy Friday, all!
I know it has been a long while since I updated the blog but I came across a homemade granola recipe that is too good not to share. It is filled with nuts, oats, and just the right amount of sweetness. I pair it with vanilla yogurt and blueberries and it makes the most scrumptious breakfast/snack/lunch/dinner? ( I won’t judge). So, in honor of Foodie Friday, here it is!
Maple and Honey Granola with Pecans, Walnuts, and Almonds
- 3/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3 T coconut oil, plus more for greasing the pan
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup pecans, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
- 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
- 2 t cinnamon
- sprinkle of sea salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease baking sheet with coconut oil.
Combine maple syrup, honey, and coconut oil in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer 4 minutes stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, set aside.
In a medium size bowl stir together oats, nuts, cinnamon, and salt. Pour hot syrup over and mix well.
Spread mixture evenly on baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring often.
Note: any variety of nut can be used for this recipe, these are just my favorites.
Enjoy and Happy Weekend!
