Equipment

Ingredients

  • cups shelled pistachios 180 grams
  • cups Honey Roasted Almond Slices 129 grams, Fresh Gourmet recommended
  • 1 cup rolled oats 100 grams
  • 1 cup roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) 119 grams
  • ½ cup steel-cut oats 99 grams
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt 3 grams
  • ½ cup brown sugar 107 grams
  • cup pure maple syrup 104 grams
  • cup canola oil 67 grams
  • ½ cup dried blueberries 85 grams
  • ½ cup dried cranberries 85 grams

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together all granola ingredients except the blueberries and cranberries.
    1½ cups shelled pistachios, 1½ cups Honey Roasted Almond Slices, 1 cup rolled oats, 1 cup roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds), ½ cup steel-cut oats, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, ½ cup brown sugar, ⅓ cup pure maple syrup, ⅓ cup canola oil
  • Spread the granola ingredients evenly onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes, stirring halfway through. Granola should be golden brown and crunchy.
  • Remove from the oven and stir in the dried blueberries and cranberries (SEE NOTE).
    ½ cup dried blueberries, ½ cup dried cranberries
  • Cool completely before enjoying.

Notes

  • NOTE: The granola can be made ahead. After baking and cooling the granola, place it in a Ziplock bag and freeze for up to 4 months. When ready to use, thaw and add the dried fruits, if desired. The granola is delicious even without the dried fruit.
  • Bake the granola in a pre-heated oven for the best results.
  • Add the dried fruit once the granola has been baked.
  • Let the granola cool completely before storing it.
  • Serve with Greek yogurt for a quick and healthy breakfast.
Storage: Store maple syrup granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 month or in the freezer for up to 4 months.
