Dang Hippie Granola
This is the most deliciously easy and customizable recipe for granola you will ever eat! Ellie Krieger knows healthy eating, and I have been using her recipe for Nutty Granola as inspiration for years. I found that I preferred a much longer baking time for extra crunch and flavor, and adding the dried fruit when the granola is cool keeps it soft and pliable. Depending on my nutritional needs I like to add seeds like sesame, chia, flax, hemp, and sunflower. They offer a myriad of vitamins, minerals, protein, essential fatty acids, and anti-oxidants to support my active lifestyle. Make this huge batch today for topping yogurt and berries, sorbet, ice cream, or enjoying with cold milk.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line two half-sheet pans with parchment. In a large bowl combine well the oats, nuts, maple syrup, salt, spices, and any add-ins. Divide the mixture evenly between the two sheet pans and spread with a spoon while making indentations to encourage clumping. Bake for 25 minutes, carefully stir to ensure even browning, rotate pans and bake for an additional 25 minutes, or until granola is a deep golden brown. Remove from oven to two cooling racks. When completely cool add the dried fruit and place in an airtight container.
Recipe Notes

Using unbleached parchment paper makes it easy to transfer your granola to containers, and you can re-use the sheets over and over.
