Martha Mondays: Maple granola
Martha's maple granola was pretty standard: maple syrup, coconut, walnuts, brown sugar and nutmeg. We ran out of olive oil, so we used grapeseed oil (a favorite of my husband's) instead. I skipped the sesame seeds and added chopped dried pears, since we're still trying to get through a box of dried fruit my husband bought on a whim this summer. (He wanted snacks for his fishing trips.) I made a stop at a local health foods store, hoping to find unsweetened coconut chips, but I couldn't find them. So I just added sweetened shredded coconut.
I'm going to file this one away in my recipe box, but make a note to maybe reduce the maple syrup and/or brown sugar a tad. Loved this week's Martha Mondays pick! Thanks for the challenge!
