Easy Homemade Granola

Easy Homemade Granola Recipe - Adorned With Love

I have my mom to thank for introducing me to this delicious recipe. She discovered it while eating breakfast at a hotel during a trip to Maine this past fall. It turns out it’s the most popular menu item at the hotel (and with good reason), so she was thrilled to learn that they were happy to share their famous recipe. We made it while I was home for Thanksgiving, and I loved it so much, I decided to package some up in festive mason jars to share as gifts this holiday season. It’s best served with milk for breakfast, but I have a feeling it would make a delicious topping on yogurt or ice cream.

Ingredients
  1. 3 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  2. 1 cup sliced almonds
  3. 1 cup cashews, in pieces or halves and pieces
  4. 3/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  5. 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  6. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  7. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  8. 1/2 tsp salt
  9. 1 tsp vanilla (I used 1/2 tsp)
  10. A few shakes of cinnamon
  11. 1 cup raisins
Instructions
  1. Mix oats, sliced almonds, cashews, coconut flakes and brown sugar in a large bowl.
  2. In a measuring jar, mix vegetable oil, maple syrup, salt and vanilla.
  3. Pour over and mix into dry ingredients, making sure everything is coated equally.
  4. Spread onto two baking sheets (no need to use parchment paper or cooking spray) and bake in a pre-heated 250 degree oven for about an hour and 15 minutes (or longer if you prefer it more crunchy), stirring at least twice during the baking time.
  5. Pour/ladle/push/scrape into a large bowl and add raisins.
Notes
  1. Optional additions: Pumpkin (pepitas) or sunflower seeds, dried apricots or pineapple.
  2. This granola keeps well in a tight container or freezer bag. You'll notice a difference between freshly baked and one week old, but one week old is still excellent! Even the two week old is good!

    I love granola! I get through a bag so quickly – making my own would be a good idea! Thanks for the recipe.
