Homemade Granola

Homemade granola

This crunchy, nutty granola is made with dark brown sugar and maple syrup. It tastes great on it’s own or topped with warm, cooked apples. It’s adapted from Alton Brown’s granola recipe. 



3 cups rolled oats

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup chopped unsalted almonds (you can also use sliced almonds)

¾ cup unsweetened coconut

¼ cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

¾ teaspoon salt

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup

¼ cup canola oil

1 cup chopped dried fruit (optional)
