Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Makes 2 cups



1 cup rolled oats

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon neutral-flavored oil, such as refined coconut, sunflower, or safflower

¼ teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract



Insert the crisper plate into the basket and the basket into the unit. Preheat the unit by selecting BAKE, setting the temperature to 250ºF (121ºC), and setting the time to 3 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, maple syrup, sugar, oil, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Transfer the granola to a 6-by-2-inch round baking pan.

Once the unit is preheated, place the pan into the basket.

Select BAKE, set the temperature to 250ºF (121ºC) and set the time to 40 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin.

After 10 minutes, stir the granola well. Resume cooking, stirring the granola every 10 minutes, for a total of 40 minutes, or until the granola is lightly browned and mostly dry.

When the cooking is complete, place the granola on a plate to cool. It will become crisp as it cools. Store the completely cooled granola in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for 1 to 2 weeks.
