i love granola – but it has never occurred to me to try and make my own! i found this recipe on the kitchn and they raved about it, so i think i might try it.  plus granola is a great energy-boosting snack that is perfect to bring along on hikes or other outdoor activities you might be doing on a nice day like today…

3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups raw pistachios, hulled
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, hulled
1 cup coconut chips
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
fresh berries, for serving (optional).
directions:
1. preheat oven to 300 degrees. in a large bowl, combine oats, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, coconut chips, maple syrup, olive oil, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and cardamom. spread mixture on a rimmed baking sheet in an even layer and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden brown and well toasted.
2. transfer granola to a large bowl and add apricots, tossing to combine. serve with yogurt or fresh fruit, if desired.
