Note. I made this like 2months ago… I’m finally posting on the blog.
It is since has been devoured; it’s long gone. Some day I’ll have the time to make more 🙂
ps. this makes your house smell FANTASTIC!
2.5 cups rolled oats
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp light brown sugar
3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
2 T canola oil
1 & 1/2 Tbsp agave nectar
2 tsp vanilla
1. In a medium bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients
3. Combine~ use your hands, it’s more fun!
3. Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees. Spray a light colored cookie sheet with cooking spray (if you don’t have a light/aluminum colored sheet, just adjust baking time down a few minutes). Spread granola evenly on the cookie sheet. Bake approx 25-30 minutes until the mixture is fragrant and *almost crunchy. Be sure to stir the mixture every 5-7 minutes. When you remove the granola from the oven, let it sit & cool on the cookie sheet till it reaches “crunchy stage.” Crunchy stage is when you shake the pan, you can hear the granola rattle.
*do not over bake or the granola will taste burnt. I did this my first time making granola, it’s just not as good that way! It’s better to take it out a bit too soon & let it finished baking outside of the oven.
My latest obsession is to combine homemade, plain yogurt, with a few tsp of blackberry jam, & top with some yummy granola. AH-MAZING!
