Nutty Granola

"With no added fat and just maple syrup to sweeten, this is a very easy, healthful granola. Not to mention tasty! Be sure to serve with lots of vanilla non-dairy milk (try recipe#221261) and sliced banana!"

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 225°F.
  • Mix first six ingredients together and spread evenly on a couple of cookie sheets.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then remove and stir. Bake another 15 minutes. While it bakes, assemble the other ingredients. (coat the 1/4 cup measure with oil before using it for maple syrup).
  • Immediately transfer oat mixture to a large bowl and stir in the dried fruit and cinnamon. Slowly, pour in the maple syrup and stir to mix well.
  • Let it cool and store in an airtight container where, my guess is, it'll keep up to a month. Like it'll last that long :-).

"A teenager who loves to cook- weird or what? But yes, it's one of my passions! To me cooking is like an art form- there's always something new and exciting to try, and there are constantly more ideas running around in my head than I know what to do with. Now, to update this page- a little task I haven't done in about two years!! Much remains the same as when I joined what seems like "forever ago": I'm a vegan with many passions: music, yoga, volunteer work, healthy/tasty food (the healthy vs. the tasty seem to run in cycles, haha) - and perhaps most of all, I love the written world. My dearest happy moments are when I am reading, writing, and feeling inspired. I'm in my first year studying at Mount Allison university for a B.A., major in English. However, since this is RecipeZaar, I must note that I'm equally obsessive about food!! Six years have passed since I was twelve and sort-of accidentally converted my family to veganism. Yes, even dad and little bro now greedily dig into their tofu shepherd pie and soy ice cream (well, clearly, one AFTER the other). I'm always on the lookout for foods that will please, and maybe even be healthy for, all of us! Now that I'm in uni and living with my aunt, uncle and cousin in New Brunswick, I still try to help with the cooking a bit. My sweetie cousin, Bilious Pigeon here on Zaar, is a terrific kitchen buddy. We share a penchant for fine coffee. Thankfully, my family here has turned mostly to the vegan side and that makes university life sooo much easier! My posted recipes, those I haven't invented, might come from Vegnews magazine, another website, one of our awesome vegan cookbooks, or friends- but it's virtually guaranteed that I've modified them at least in some way, and if from a book or show, I always acknowledge the original source. After all, I'd want someone to do the same for me. Since returning to the public education system after eight years of homeschooling, I don't have quite as much time in the kitchen as I used to. But I don't let that stifle my creativity! One of my favorite activities is in the summer when I get together with another cousin ~Harriet~, who's also here on Zaar, and we cook as much as we want. Good times! One more thing about me. I'm a Zaar game addict. And proud of it, and I'd advise anyone to join who would like more reviews on their own recipes, not to mention spending time with fun people and trying recipes they might not find otherwise. Please Zmail me with any questions or just to chat. Hope you enjoy, and are inspired by, my ideas! <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap4/group06grape.jpg> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/austmap_wattle_small-1.gif"> <img src="http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap3/group02banana.jpg> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=chefkoalas.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/chefkoalas.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/Copyofsoybean.jpg" border="0" alt="tag"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Correa.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/DSC_0020.jpg"> <img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/My-3-Chefs%20banners/my3chefs2008Small.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/tree20kangaroo2001-thumb-1.jpg"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap1/group01avocado.jpg>"

    Made this recipe as given & was well-rewarded with a great tasting granola! On your suggestion, I used half dark & half golden raisins, & the dates were Medjool! Very, Very nice, especially when I sprinkled it over some frozen vanilla yogurt & topped that with a bit of homemade blueberry sauce! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC tag]

    This is a really great granola recipe WRC and I thank you. I used for the nut part - walnuts and raw almonds. I did cut back a bit on the sunflower seeds due to the fat content. I also took a little initiative and added 1/8 cup honey along with the 1/4 cup maple syrup. After mixing all the ingredients together, I stuck it back in the oven for another 10 minutes to bake some of the goodness on the oats etc. A great winning recipe~ Made for Cook-bookTag~

    This. Is. Wonderful. I just love that it has no added fats, that it's absurdly easy, and that it's chock full of good all-natural things! I used the full 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon (delicious) and took another reviewer's suggestion to increase the maple syrup to 1/2 cup. Since I never have bran on hand, I just put in more oats...used sliced almonds in place of pecans...and a mix of organic jumbo flame raisins, chopped dried apricots, and dried cranberries. It made a fantastic breakfast with some low-fat milk and fresh blueberries. I would call it a muesli more than granola, though, since it didn't exactly "clump together" like granola usually does.

    YUM! I love this granola! Help, I can't stop eating it! That said, I have to admit to a few changes. I ran out of raisins, so instead used finely chopped dried apricots, 2 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and a full 1/2 cup of maple syrup. Everything else was per the recipe. I used the oat bran option. YUM, YUM, YUM. I will definitely make this one again. Thanks so much, White Rose Child! Keep up the fantastic recipes!
