Blue Bottle’s Granola Recipe

IMG_6803.jpg

I got this from Blue Bottle’s recipe book.  Always good to have some of this hanging around.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup water
4 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 cup canola oil
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar and water.  Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly while sugar dissolves and begins to boil.  Put aside and let cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.  Add the oil, vanilla, brown sugar mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.  Transfer to a rimmed 13″x18″ inch baking tray. Pat down to an even layer and bake for 75 minutes, break up granola into a few big pieces and flip halfway through. Make sure it is all dried out and not sticky.  Let dry completely before storing.
