If you’ve never made your own granola, you may be shocked at how easy it is. I love making granola at home. It’s a pretty hands-off process, and you can have a lot of fun with different flavor combinations.

This Apricot-Ginger Granola recipe only has seven ingredients, and it’s the perfect mix of sweet, spicy and nutty, with a touch of shredded coconut for good measure.

It takes an hour or so tomake granola in theoven, but you don’t have to be there for most of it. Just check in every 15 minutes or so to give everything a stir. Stirring helps your granola cook evenly. so you don’t end up with any chewy bits.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil or other neutral oil
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1" piece fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250F.
  2. Combine the oil, maple syrup, and ginger in your blender or food processor.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together the maple syrup mixture and the oats, and cashews. Bake for 60-90 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, so your granola cooks evenly. When you stir, make sure that the oats around the perimeter of your pan get pushed to the middle, because otherwise they will burn. Your granola is done when it's dry and toasty. How long it will take depends on your oats and how humid your kitchen is.
  4. Toss the cooked granola together with the coconut and dried apricots, and cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the pantry until you're ready to eat. It will keep for about a week.
