Maple Olive Oil Granola

by Hillary on December 2, 2012

Nothing beats homemade granola. Nothing.

I haven’t made a batch of crispy oats in a while, but a rainy winter Saturday was the perfect time to do so. 

This batch included some of my granola favorites like pecans and pepitas, but I went out on a limb by using Omega-3-rich olive oil. 

Oh, and the Trader Joe’s roasted coconut chips… those totally put this recipe over the top! 

With two full Ball jars of fresh granola in my cupboard, I don’t see my CrossFit craving going anywhere soon.

I love the idea of an olive oil granola. No one every thinks of it, but what a fantastic concept of sweet and savory.

I love how simple this is. Nothing better than a plain granola with a kick :)

Mmmm, I love granola (which is probably obvious!). Love the addition of pepitas!

Yum, those pictures are beautiful! Wonder if flavored olive oils would taste good, I might have to try that! :) Thanks.

Love the addition of olive oil! I usually stick to flavorless canola or vegetable when making granola, but I think next time I may change things up! Thanks :)
