Nut & Seed Granola
This protein-rich Nut & Seed Granola cooks up quickly and deliciously.
Servings: 6 cups
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup nuts of choice (I used walnuts and sliced almonds)
- 0.5 cup seeds of choice (I used pumpkin and sunflower seeds)
- 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp. hemp seeds
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- Dash of salt
- 0.25 cup light olive oil or grapeseed oil
- 0.25 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Optional add-ins: dried fruit, unsweetened shredded coconut, chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients (oats through salt). Add in oil; mix until well combined. Next add in maple syrup and vanilla; mix until oil, syrup and vanilla well-incorporated. Pour mixture onto parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely, then break apart. Add optional add-in ingredients, if desired. Keeps in airtight container for up to 1 week.
