My favorite granola

  I posted a picture of some granola I made yesterday and received some requests for the recipe. This granola is pretty easy to put together. You can really add anything in you like.  I get all of my ingredients at Trader Joe’s. They have a great variety of nuts, seeds, and dried fruits. I hadn’t made it in a long time and Justin requested it. He loves to eat it with some vanilla yogurt in the morning. I keep a copy of this recipe on my phone in the Evernote app. I ❤️ this app. I use the free subscription. I have a whole notebook of recipes at my fingertips. It keeps me super organized. 

2 3⁄4 cups rolled oats 

1 cup shelled pistachios, unsalted

1 cup unsweetened   coconut chips  

1/3 cup pumpkin seeds 

1 teaspoon  salt 

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1⁄2 cup light brown sugar 

1/3 cup maple syrup

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 

3⁄4 cup dried fruit or mini chocolate chips 
1. Preheat oven to 300. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, pistachios, coconut, pumpkin seeds, salt and cinnamon.
2. In a small saucepan set over low heat, warm the sugar, maple syrup and olive oil until the sugar has just dissolved, then remove from heat. Stir  liquid into the mixture of oats, making sure to coat the dry ingredients well.
3. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spread granola over it. Bake until dry and lightly golden, 35 to 40 minutes. 

Happy Friday!
