Chopping the almonds by hand is the first choice for superior texture and crunch. If you prefer not to hand chop, substitute an equal quantity of slivered or sliced almonds. (A food processor does a lousy job of chopping whole nuts evenly.) Use a single type of your favorite dried fruit or a combination. Do not use quick oats.


1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup packed (2 1/3 ounces) light brown sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups (10 ounces) raw almonds, chopped coarse
2 cups raisins or other dried fruit, chopped
1. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Whisk maple syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt in large bowl. Whisk in oil. Fold in oats and almonds until thoroughly coated.

3. Transfer oat mixture to prepared baking sheet and spread across sheet into thin, even layer (about 3/8 inch thick). Using stiff metal spatula, compress oat mixture until very compact. Bake until lightly browned, 40 to 45 minutes, rotating pan once halfway through baking. Remove granola from oven and cool on wire rack to room temperature, about 1 hour. Break cooled granola into pieces of desired size. Stir in dried fruit. (Granola can be stored in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.)

Saw this on ATK awhile back.  While I was at the Giant yesterday I noticed they were selling little bags of this for $6-$9 a pop.  Thus inspired to take it to the man, I made it.  I cannot tell you how good this is, but MoSup wants to:

WIFE: "Land-a- Goshen but this is good!"

Here's the best part.  It took all of 5 minutes to make and put in the oven.  40 minutes bake time, I think, is better than 45.

Here the on-line recipe.  It made 2 pounds, or as host Christopher Kimball said, "$80 worth!"

You're welcome.

            BEST EVER GRANOLA Posted by Rodger the Real King of France | 5/01/2015 10:27:00 AM | PERMALINK Back Link (1) | Send This Post | HOME


"The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation:
The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. And all this comes even as Clinton has had a terrible week—arguably her worst week ever, as the billowing smoke of financial scandal clouds herself and her family."

I love cereal, and I'd eat granola but for the fact that it tastes like ass.
