PISTACHIO AND PINEAPPLE GRANOLA
The temperature was in the positives today, and you know what that means? Spring is coming! As much as I love winter, I am a huge fan of inter-seasons. That beautiful time of year when winter melts to spring, or when summer fades into autumn. The glistening sun and spring scent in the air had me craving summer flavours, and what says summer better then pineapple?
PISTACHIO AND PINEAPPLE GRANOLA // makes about 6 cups
Preheat oven to 325.
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup pistachios, shelled
3/4 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup whole almonds
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup dried pineapple, chopped
What to do:
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together the olive oil, maple syrup and vanilla.
Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and stir to evenly coat everything.
Lay the mixture on 2 parchment lined baking sheets, trying to spread the granola into a single layer.
Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden and crispy, checking and stirring at 10.
Once removed from the oven, add the chopped pineapple.
Let cool completely before storing.
ps. thanks cmae for the stunning new bowl.
