Holiday Spice Granola With Cranberries

Holiday Spice Granola With Cranberries

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 and 1/2 cups Old Fashioned or quick oats
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar - packed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup butter - melted
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by spraying it lightly with cooking spay.

In a large bowl, mix together the oats, flour, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, pecans and almonds.

In a separate bowl, stir together the melted butter, maple syrup and vanilla.

Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined and moistened. (I like to use my hands - mixing with an alternating squeezing motion. You get more clusters that way.)

Spread mixture out over the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes. Flip the granola and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Add the cranberries. Stir up the granola. Bake 2 more minutes.

Remove from oven. Granola will continue to crisp as it cools.

Allow the granola to cool completely before serving or storing.

This stores well for a week in an sealed container.
