Great Granola With Pecans, Cranberries and Orange

Makes 1 quart

2 cups old fashioned oats

1/2 cup wheat germ

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/4 cup maple syrup

3 tablespoons flavorless oil, such as vegetable or canola

1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest

1/2 cup dried cranberries

 Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 275 degrees. Mix oats, wheat germ, salt and pecans in a medium bowl. Heat syrup, oil, 2 tablespoons water and orange zest to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Drizzle over oat mixture and stir to combine.

Pour mixture into a 13-by 9-inch pan coated with vegetable cooking spray. Working a handful at a time, squeeze cereal to form small clumps. Bake for 30 minutes. Stir in dried fruit. Continue to bake until golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes longer. Let cool and serve. (Can be stored in an airtight tin for 1 month.)

Next: Black bean soup with cumin and salsa verde. >>
