Maple Granola

Maple GranolaImage

One of my best friends, Anna Claire, gave me this cookbook for my birthday last year:Image

I’ve tried several recipes from this book and they are all SO good! I’ve adapted her granola recipe a couple of different times and they are all delicious! My latest twist is using hazelnuts instead of walnuts. It also freezes well if you want to make it in bulk! Here’s what you do:

Image

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Combine all the ingredients but the egg white and dried fruit into a large bowl, and mix to coat evenly. Image

Whisk egg white in a separate bowl until frothy. Stir into granola mixture until evenly distributed.

This stuff smells good y’all!Image

Spread onto a parchment-lined making sheet and bake for 45-55 minutes. Image

Half-way through cook time, flip the granola with a large spatula. Image

YUM! My house always smells amazing after cooking this! Once completely cool, sprinkle in dried fruit (I used blueberries), and store in an airtight container. Image
