Honey and Olive Oil Granola

makes 6 cups

Ingredients

  • cups cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • cup pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • cup olive oil
  • cup honey
  • 1 cup small-diced mixed dried fruit, such as apricots, raisins, pitted dates, and cranberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, almonds, walnuts, pepitas, sesame seeds, and salt. Add the olive oil and mix until the ingredients are well-coated, then add the honey and mix again.
  • Bake for 50 minutes, tossing once halfway through, until the oats are golden brown.
  • Add the dried fruit, toss, and spread the granola into an even layer, packing it down with spatula or wooden spoon. Sprinkle lightly with salt and set aside until completely cool.
  • Break the granola into pieces, then transfer to an airtight container, being careful not to break up the clumps. Granola will keep for up to a week, stored in a sealed container, at room temperature.
