"Man! I love Granola" he keeps saying. "I'll eat it on yogurt, with milk, by itself"....
OK! I'll make granola!
My own combination of my favorite things, we've been eating it everyday for a week, and it tastes better now (a week later) than when I made it.
3 cups (old fashioned)rolled oats
1 cup walnut pieces
1 cup raisins
1 cup dried apples (chopped)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup real maple syrup
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup canola oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, except for the syrup, honey and oil.
Warm the syrup, honey and oil in a saucepan or in a glass bowl in the microwave until just warm. Pour over dry mixture and stir to coat evenly. Spread out on the pan and bake for 15- 25 minutes (depending on how crispy you like your granola). Stir every 5-7 minutes to bake evenly. Cool and store in airtight containers. Makes about 8 cups.

- A dedicated foodie, with a passion for the best food. Favorite food crushes include; Cheese, Wine, Breads, Seafood, anything made with eggs, ...there's actually no point in a list, there isn't much out there I don't have a crush on. Transplanted from the Northeast at age 18, a whole new frontier of food was opened up to me. I have fished for Salmon, hunted for mushrooms, cracked open fresh oysters from the sea and devoured them on the spot. Figs, pears, peaches, so many indigenous jewels! I dedicate this BLOG to the endless variety this region provides. My hope is to live here for a very long time & continue to discover and experience it's unique bounty! Alas, my life has now taken me to Cincinnati, OH where the food culture is like none I have ever experienced.
