Tap in to something real.
olive oil + maple granola
- 10 cups rolled oats (NOT quick oats)
- 2 cups raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- 2 cups sliced almonds
- 1/2 cup natural sesame seeds
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
It seriously doesn't get any easier than this. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread oat mixture onto two large rimmed baking sheets.
Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to make sure the top layer doesn't get too toasted and that the bottom layers get toasted.
When granola is done you can add whatever kind of dried fruit you like! Cranberries, blueberries, raisins, coconut.... I just kept my batch of granola as is because I like to top my smoothies with it, and they are full of fruit!
