I found this recipe from Alton Brown, on the Food Network. It is an easy granola, and was really crispy, light and sweet. It may become my new favorite granola! Nicole just happened to make the same granola the other day and also loved it.
Easy Maple Granola
adapted from: Alton Brown (www.foodnetwork.com)
3 c. rolled oats
1 c. sliced almonds
3/4 c. shredded, sweetened coconut
1/4 c. plus 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 c. plus 2 Tbsp. maple syrup (I used homemade)
1/4 c. vegetable oil
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 dashes nutmeg
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. In a large bowl combine the oats, almonds, coconut and brown sugar. Stir it well. In another bowl, mix together the maple syrup, oil, salt, vanilla and nutmeg. Combine the oil mixture in with the oat mixture and stir them well. Spread the granola evenly onto two cookie sheets. Bake it for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring it every 20 minutes. When it is done, let it cool completely before putting it in a zip lock bag.
