Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Granola

4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Homemade Granola

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

  2. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together except for the dried fruit. Set the dried fruit aside.

  3. In another bowl mix the sweetener, oil, and extract together.

  4. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. The liquids will be absorbed and the granola will become darker and shinier.

  5. Spread the granola in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for ten minutes. Use a spatula and turn the granola on the baking sheet. Place the granola back in the oven and bake for another ten minutes or until fairly dry and starting to brown. Remove the granola from the oven and stir in the fruit.

  6. Granola will become crispier and crunchier as it cools.

  7. 2. Because of the oil, granola will not stay fresh long. Store in an airtight container and use within two weeks. Freeze for longer storage.

  8. Experiment with different types of fruit in place of the raisins. Dried apricots or peaches? Mango? Also feel free to add in nondairy chocolate chips for a touch of decadence.
