All manner of dried fruits are delicious in this recipe. Try adding a handful of sliced dried apricots, dried cranberries or raisins to this filling morning mix. It's equally good eaten out-of-hand as a snack.
Serves 6 to 8
Preheat oven to 300°F. Toss together oats, flour and almonds in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together maple syrup or honey, oil, almond extract, nutmeg and salt. Add to the oat mixture, stirring well to coat. Spread mixture on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake, stirring occasionally to break up lumps, until deep golden brown, fragrant and just dry to the touch, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow granola to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
