Maple Walnut and Raisin Granola
I’ve always wanted to make my own granola. I have so much fun eating it, considering I eat it on top/in pretty much everything! So making my own fun combinations of it sounds a lot more fun and cost efficient than always buying it.
So I adapted this recipe, and made some amazing granola. It’s not super sugary, but the raisins add a nice sweetness and chew to it. And the walnuts and cornflakes really add a great crunch.
- 3 c. rolled oats
- 2 c. corn flakes
- 1 1/2 c. chopped walnuts
- 3/4 c. shredded sweetened coconut
- 1/4 c. + 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1/4 c. + 2 tbsp. maple syrup
- 1/4 c. vegetable oil
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 c. raisins
Preheat oven to 250 (F) degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, cornflakes, walnuts, coconut, and brown sugar.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, oil, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla.
Combine both mixtures and blend gently until evenly coated.
Spread mixture onto two sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Bake for 1 hr. 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.
Remove from oven and allow to rest on pans until cooled. Transfer into a bowl and add raisins; mix gently until evenly distributed.
Store in air tight container.
