Today is Labor Day Monday. First one in a long time that I am not waking up in the country, with a full Brome Fair belly. I suppose I could have decided to make something deep fried and delicious this morning, but instead I gravitated towards some homemade comfort granola.
Inspired by Seven Spoons
Preheat oven to 375.
Mix together the wet/sweet ingredients:
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil (or olive oil)
pinch of salt
Mix together the dry ingredients:
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
Fold the wet ingredients over the dry, and using your hands, coat the oats really well.
Spread onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Stir the mixture and rotate the pan; bake for an additional 8-10 minutes.
Once removed from the oven, let the granola cool for about 20 minutes to maximize crispy-ness.
