Healthy Maple Granola

After subscribing to EatingWell Magazine, I have found SO many amazing healthy and easy recipes! I loved the story of ‘The Breakfast Club’ and found the maple granola recipe especially amazing. I have made another Honey Granola recipe, but having a few granola recipes is never a bad thing. The rain falling outside on Saturday morning made a perfect backdrop for the sweet taste of toasted granola in my kitchen.

I altered the recipe slightly as I indicate below, and added a secret ingredient! I normally do not share those but you HAVE to try Penzey’s Baking Spice. After discovering this amazing blend of spices, I sprinkle a little in almost everything I bake. One other point of advice, make sure to use real maple syrup. Many super market variety’s are flavored syrup but not true maple syrup. I once heard that it takes 40 gallons of maple sap to make 1 gallon of pure maple syrup. Yes it is a little more money but truly worth the organic pure taste.

This recipe is super easy and makes a lot of granola, which is perfect to give as gifts in cute glass mason jars!
