Why choose, when you can satisfy a sweet tooth and enjoy oats, nuts and seeds with bite (and cheese)? Two recipes, two blends of If & When, both great flavors for breakfast or snacking.
4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup mixed seeds and nuts of your choice, such as almonds pipitas, sunflower seeds, chia, etc.
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 TBS vanilla extract
1 TBS If & When Moroccan Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup dark maple syrup
3/4 cup dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, apricots, mango (optional)
1 cinnamon quill (very optional) - add to mixture in oven tray before baking to amp up the aroma
Preheat oven to 350F.
Line baking sheet with baking paper.
In a large bowl, combine oats, nuts and cinnamon.
In a small bowl blend honey, vanilla, lemon paste and olive oil, then add contents to large bowl and blend until all oats and nuts are covered in the wet mixture.
Spread granola onto baking sheet. Top with quill.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so to move granola to the middle, especially if your oven crisps oats on the edges of the tray faster than the middle. You want an even, lightly golden color throughout.
Cool granola before adding dried fruit.
