Granola from the Pantry
by Chef Rob Valencia

My girlfriend and I are granola junkies. We tried a million varieties until we finally came up with our own version using stuff we had lying around in the pantry. It's super easy to whip up and take on our power walks.

½    cup    Honey or real maple syrup

2     Tbsp  Olive oil

3     Tbsp  Molasses

1      tsp    Sea salt

1      tsp    Vanilla extract

1               Cinnamon stick  

1      qt      Rolled oats (not quick cooking oats or instant)

1      cup   Pecan halves, toasted

1      cup   Cashew halves, toasted

½     cups Walnut halves, toasted

¼     cup  Sunflower seeds, toasted

¼     cup  Pumpkin seeds, toasted


Boil ingredients from honey to cinnamon stick for 3 minutes. Discard cinnamon stick. 

Combine oats, nuts and seeds and toss with liquid mixture.

Spread on sheet pans and toast in a 300 ºF oven for approximately 10-15 minutes, until golden brown, stirring twice. Enjoy!
