Lisa's Granola


From EatingWell:  March/April 2012

This easy cinnamon-spiked granola is loaded with almonds, walnuts and pepitas, but substitute other nuts and seeds if you prefer. For vegans who don’t eat honey, this can be made with all maple syrup.

About 10 cups | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a roasting pan or large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine oats, almonds, walnuts and pepitas in a large bowl. Whisk maple syrup, oil, honey, cinnamon, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl until blended. Pour over the oat mixture and toss to coat. Spread the mixture in the prepared pan.
  3. Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until lightly and evenly browned and starting to dry out, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool completely in the pan before serving or storing.
