Jamie's Easy Granola


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....
  • 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!
