I first saw this recipe for Maple Pecan Granola at Kath Eats Real Food. I’ve made my own tweaks and love this so much it must be shared.

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 c oat bran
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp canola oil
2 tbsp Grade A REAL maple syrup
1/2 cup chopped pecans, walnuts or almonds
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Melt butter in a bowl, stir in canola oil, maple syrup and salt. Stir in oats, oat bran and nuts until well coated. Spread mixture on a cookie sheet and bake at 300 for 20 minutes. Toss granola around a bit with a spatula and then put back in the oven for an additional 5 – 10 minutes.
