KRISPY GOOD-FOR-YOU GRANOLA
1/3 c. maple syrup
1/3 c. light brown sugar
½ c. cooking oil
4 t. vanilla
½ t. salt
2 c. chopped almonds
2 T. flax seed
5 c. old-fashioned oatmeal
1 c. dark raisins
1 c. dried cherries
1 c. flaked sweetened coconut
In a large bowl, whisk together syrup, brown sugar, cooking oil, vanilla, and salt. Stir in almonds, flax seed, and oatmeal. Pour mixture into a ½-sheet-size baking pan that has been lined with parchment paper for easier cleanup. Press mixture firmly evenly into pan. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 40-45 min., rotating pan halfway through baking. Remove from oven and cool for 1 hr. Break granola into pieces. Stir in raisins, dried cherries, and coconut. Makes about 9 c. granola. May be kept in a closed container for a week. Enjoy as a snack by itself or with milk or yogurt.
**The original recipe from America’s Test Kitchen did not include flax seed, dried cherries, or coconut. A variety of dried fruits and seeds can be added or deleted according to your preference.
