Jamie's Easy Granola

on

Happy Monday food lovers! Have I mentioned how much I love Jamie Oliver's cookbooks lately?! Specifically "Jamie's Food Revolution" cookbook that has everything from poached eggs to full Sunday meals. I was flipping through for something yummy on Sunday morning and found this recipe which seemed flexible on ingredients. Here is the recipe... James FREAKED on it!!! YUM! So easy too....
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)

  • 1 heaped cup mixed nuts

  • 1/4 cup mixed seeds (sunflower, poppy, pumpkin, sesame)

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup

  • About 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 1/2 cups dried fruit

  • Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350°. Put oatmeal, mixed nuts, mixed seeds, coconut, and cinnamon on a baking sheet.
    Stir well; smooth out. Drizzle with maple syrup and olive oil; stir. Bake 25-30 minutes. Every 5 minutes or so take out and stir, then smooth down with a wooden spoon and put back in oven. When granola is golden, remove from oven, mix in dried fruit (roughly chop any large pieces); let cool. Serve with milk or yogurt or eat raw like we have been doing all weekend! You can keep leftover granola in an airtight container about 2 weeks, but it's so delicious we'll be surprised if it lasts that long!
