Best Granola of Your Life

A controlled substance

Olive Oil and Maple Granola
Adapted (slightly) from Orangette via Felony Kirsch

3 C. Oats
1 C. raw hulled Pumpkin Seeds
1 C. raw hulled Sunflower Seeds
1 C. unsweetened Chocolate Nibs
1 C. unsweetened Coconut Chips
1 1/4 C. raw Pecans, whole or chopped
1/2 C. Light Brown Sugar
1 t. Kosher Salt
3/4 C. Maple Syrup (the real stuff, don't be a jerk)
1/2 C. Olive Oil

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine everything and stir until well combined.  (As a note, basically everything is optional and amounts may be adjusted to suit your taste EXCEPT for the olive oil.  Don't mess with the olive oil.)

Spread the mixture in an even layer on the prepared sheet pan.  Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until the granola is golden brown and toasted, about 45 minutes.  If you like it chunky (you know who you are) skip the final stirring session.  Remove the granola and let cool completely.  If you want to include some dried fruit, now's your chance.  Try not to eat all at once and store in an airtight container.

This time two years ago: Baked Brie
