Simple Vanilla-Maple Granola

Submitted by: HEAVENSSHADOW

Introduction

This is a tasty granola I spiced up with cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Gives it a wonderful aroma and nice pick-me-up flavor.
You can add or subtract as you choose to the ingredients list. It's simple because that is all I had on hand, but flax, wheat germ or mixed seeds would be lovely additions as well. Just be sure to adapt your honey/syrup mixture to evenly coat everything. Enjoy!

Ingredients

    2.5 cups Rolled or Steel-cut Oats
    1 cup Dried Cranberries
    1 cup (heaping) coarsely chopped pecans
    2 Tbsp light brown sugar
    2 Tbsp light oil
    1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp Honey
    1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
    1/2 tsp Cinnamon
    1/4 tsp Nutmeg
    2 tsp Vanilla

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
Toss the dry ingredients, including spices, vanilla and brown sugar, in a large bowl to combine.
Add in the honey, maple syrup and oil and mix until well coated.
You can add or subtract what you wish to the ingredients list, I just used what I had on hand. Flax or Wheat germ, or mixed seeds would be a good addition to the mixture. Just be sure to adapt your coatings accordingly.
Spread mixture out onto prepared baking sheet. Pop into the oven for 30-40 minutes until golden, stirring once or twice during baking. For a nice crunch, you can broil on low for the last3-5 minutes of cook time.
Pull from the oven and let cool on the foil. Some of the oats may stick. Store in airtight container.

Makes about 12, half-cup servings.
