This light, not too sweet and crispy granola is a favorite recipe of Miriam’s sister. Customize with your favorite nuts and dried fruit. We like to layer it with some AE Yogurt for a delightful breakfast or snack. It makes for a lovely hostess gift too when packaged in a Mason jar!
Preheat the oven to 300ºF. Combine the oats, nuts, brown sugar, flax seed, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Stir the oil, honey and vanilla together in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 80% power until warm, 20 to 30 seconds. Pour the oil mixture over the oat mixture and stir until thoroughly coated. Spread the oat mixture in a 15-by-10-inch baking pan and bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
