Simple Maple Granola

Hi guys!  It's Kim, from Soliloquy Of Food & Such.  Today I am sharing on of my favorite granola recipes.  Granola can be so expensive!  This is an easy recipe to save you some, it smells duh-vine whilst baking to golden granola-y perfection.

Once the oats have been thoroughly mixed with the maple syrup coating, press firmly into a baking sheet.  Once baked you can then break the granola into chunks, as little or as big as your tree-hugging, granola-loving hearts desire!

I make mine without nuts, but you can add them in if you prefer.  Once cooled, throw in a few cups of dried fruit...or just snack on it plain, straight-up. 

Simple Maple Granola, adapted from Americas Test Kitchen
makes 8 cups 

1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
5 cups old fashioned rolled oats
2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
2 cups dried fruit (optional)

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 325ยบ.
Measure out oats and chopped nuts into a large mixing bowl, set aside.
Combine maple syrup, brown sugar, oil, vanilla and salt - whisk together.
Pour over oats, toss to coat - mix well.

Press dressed oats evenly into pan with the back of your measuring cup. 
Bake for 40-45 minutes, turning the pan half way through.
Cool in pan for 1 hour; break into clumps.
If adding dried fruit, chop into raisin-size pieces for a more uniform texture.
Store in a sealed container, keeps for 2 weeks.
