The contents and proportions of granola are very flexible. For example, substitute or add other nuts, such as almonds. Use raisins rather than dried cranberries, or perhaps chopped dried mango. Add additional seeds, such as chia seeds. Maybe you like shredded coconut. It’s fun to customize.Serve with milk or yogurt and top with fresh fruit. This granola is also great by the handful.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or baking parchment.
  2. Stir together the vegetable oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, except the dried cranberries. Stir until evenly combined.
  3. Spread the mixture in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes. Place the pan on a cooling rack, stirring occasionally as the granola comes to room temperature. Stir in the dried cranberries.
  4. Transfer to a sealed container and store at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
