This weekend, we’re going camping.
So, I wanted to make something fun to snack on while we’re out in the hot sun. What better than granola?
It’s healthy and this version is very flavorful. I love the nuts and dried fruit in it.
It’s the perfect camping snack!
Mixed Berry Granola
Adapted from: The New York Times
3 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups of sliced almonds
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, hulled
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped, dry mixed berries
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Mix together the oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup, olive oil, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.
Be sure to crumble any clumps of brown sugar.
Spread the mixture in an even layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 45 minutes at 300 degrees, stirring every 10 minutes.
The granola will be golden when it’s done.
Stir in the mixed berries.
Doesn’t it look yummy?
You can put it in Mason jars for storage. Or in a large Ziploc bag to take camping.
