Bourbon Maple Granola

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup SAP syrup 
  • 3 Tbsp canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

  • Pour oats and pecans into a large mixing bowl.

  • In a separate mixing bowl whisk together all remaining ingredients. Pour over oats and toss until evenly moistened.

  • Pour mixture onto a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet, and spread into an even layer.

  • Bake in preheated oven about 40-45 minutes, tossing once halfway through baking (granola should be crisp after resting at room temp a few minutes).

  • Cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
