Simple Granola made with old fashioned oatmeal, pecans, and maple syrup.
Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. I don’t know if I’ve ever skipped breakfast. I just don’t function well without something in my belly. This maple pecan granola is my new favorite way to start the day.
This granola will also be a going back to school staple for me. I need to have snacks available for quick eating. Sometimes I don’t have time for lunch so I keep quick eating foods in my office to grab when I have a few minutes. This granola plus yogurt stocked in the fridge equal a healthy choice for me.
I store granola in glass canning jars with plastic, reusable lids. You can store it in any container that has a airtight seal.
I make granola with Old Fashioned Oatmeal. It is a bit thicker and heartier than quick cooking versions.
Homemade granola flavored with maple syrup.
- 4 cups Old Fashioned Oats
- 1 1/2 cups pecans chopped
- 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
Pour oats and pecans into a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl, add oil and maple syrup.
Microwave syrup mixture for 30-45 seconds, just until warmed.
Pour syrup mixture over oats.
Pour oats onto a large greased baking sheet.
Bake at 300 degrees for 45-60 minutes stirring every 15 minutes.
