Ingredients

  • 2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)
  • 1 heaped cup mixed nuts
  • 1/4 cup mixed seeds (sunflower, poppy, pumpkin, sesame)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • About 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups dried fruit

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Put oatmeal, mixed nuts, mixed seeds, coconut, and cinnamon on a baking sheet. Stir well; smooth out. Drizzle with maple syrup and olive oil; stir. Bake 25-30 minutes. Every 5 minutes or so take out and stir, then smooth down with a wooden spoon and put back in oven. When granola is golden, remove from oven, mix in dried fruit (roughly chop any large pieces); let cool. Serve with milk or yogurt. You can keep leftover granola in an airtight container about 2 weeks, but it's so delicious we'll be surprised if it lasts that long!
