As soon as I saw this recipe on shutterbean I KNEW I had to have some. Tracy actually sent me some to my door because I was drooling so much. This is one of my most favorite granola recipes ever! So I knew it would make great christmas gifts for my family! I put it mason jars and tried my best to decorate them kind of cute. Hope they like it!
Here’s my version of it!
- 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 1/2 cups raw pistachios, hulled
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 3/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
Preheat oven to 300F. In a large bowl, mix the oats, pistachios, coconut, maple syrup oil, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, cardamom together until well combined. Spread the granola mixture onto a very large baking sheet in an even layer. Bake for about 40-45 minutes, making sure to stir the granola every 10 minutes. The granola is done when the mixture is golden brown. Add the chopped apricots and toss well. Store in air-tight container.
