Maple Granola with Cranberries and Apples
Serves: Makes 1 quart
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • ½ cup flaxseed meal
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup each: dried cranberries and chopped dried apple
  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 275 degrees. Mix oats, flaxseed meal, salt, and walnuts in a medium bowl. Bring maple syrup, oil, water, and cinnamon to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Drizzle over oat mixture and stir to combine.
  2. Pour mixture into a 13-by 9-inch pan coated with vegetable cooking spray. Working a handful at a time, squeeze cereal to form small clumps. Bake for 30 minutes. Stir in cranberries and apples. Continue to bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes longer. Let cool and serve. (Can be stored in an airtight tin for 1 month.)
