Healthy and Delicious Homemade Granola (Also Sugarless)

Ingredients

Serving Size: Makes One 32oz Wide Mouth Mason Jar

  • 2 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 Cup Mixed Nuts (e.g. whole almonds and/or slivered almonds, pistachios)
  • 1/4 Cup Mixed Seeds (e.g. pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, golden flax seeds)
  • 1/4 Maple Syrup 
  • 1/4 Cup Zeytin Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Salt to Taste
  • Optional: 1/3 Chopped Dried Fruit (e.g. figs, apricots, dates) - include only if you aren't eating with fresh fruit

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients together with the exception of the dried fruit (if adding). 
  3. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, stir the mixture to prevent certain parts from overcooking, and continue to bake for another 10-12 minutes until the granola is golden brown. 
  4. Let the granola cool completely (at least 30 minutes) undisturbed.
  5. If you add in the optional chopped dried fruit, now is the time to add the ingredients in. 
  6. Store in an airtight container and enjoy!

 

Note: We like to eat our granola with yogurt and fresh berries like a parfait, but you can also enjoy with milk and dried fruit and it will taste just as amazing!
