Granola3

Ever look around your kitchen and realize there is nothing in your pantry worth snacking on?  Too many chips and sweets hiding out in your cupboards. With the holidays just beginning, and the parties speeding ahead full throttle, here is a recipe to keep your hunger at bay and your body looking svelte. You won’t feel guilt filling up on this healthy alternative!

I’ve tried for years to find the perfect granola. Either I found them too sweet or basically tasteless. So I decided to make my own with my favorite ingredients. This particular recipe blends the perfect amount of sweet & savory with the right kind of texture that makes a granola worth eating. – Amy

INGREDIENTS 

3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1 cups raw almonds chopped

3/4 cup pure maple syrup, preferably Grade A

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Combine oats, almonds, syrup, olive oil, sugar, and salt in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Divide mixture between 2 rimmed baking sheets and spread in an even layer. Transfer to oven and bake, stirring every 10 minutes, until granola is toasted, about 45 minutes.

Remove granola from oven and season with salt. Let cool completely before serving or storing in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
