Adapted from "Baked: New Frontiers in Baking" by Matt Lewis & Renato Poliafito
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup whole almonds
- 1/3 cup whole hazelnuts
- 1/3 cup muscatels or raisins
- 1/3 cup dried apricots (cut roughly)
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, toss the oats with the cinnamon and salt.
In a medium bowl, stir together the oil, honey, brown sugar, maple syrup & vanilla.
Whisk until completely combined.
Pour the honey mixture over the oats mixture and use your hands to combine them: Gather up some of the mixture in each hand and make a fist. Repeat until all of the oats are coated with the honey mixture.
Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread it out evenly, but leave a few clumps here and there for texture.
Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and use a metal spatula to lift and flip the granola. Sprinkle the almonds over the granola and return the baking sheet to the oven.
