Cherry Pecan Granola
adapted from cdkitchen
- 4 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup pecan halves
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup honey (or other sweetener)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Mix oats, pecans, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a separate small bowl combine oil and honey; you do not need to stir. Microwave for 60 seconds then pour over oats mixture.
Stir oil mixture into oats until it is completely incorporated into the oats mixture. It will still look a little dry. Spread on a large baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Bake for 40 minutes, stirring carefully every 10 minutes. Let granola cool completely then add to a large Ziploc or other storage container. Mix in dried cherries. Store at room temperature for up to one week.
