She's My Cherry Pie


This is a yet another variation of my family's granola recipe. I went for dried cherries and lots of cinnamon which gave it a cherry pie taste (hence the name) and filled the kitchen with the most incredible smells.  

Cherry Pie Granola
yields 4 cups

3 cups of old fashioned oats
1/2 cup chooped walnuts
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup quinoa, dried, uncooked
2 Tbsp. chia seeds
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 egg white, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup maple syrup or honey

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients, listed first, in a large mixing bowl. Whisk your egg white and other wet ingredients together. Mix into dry.

Spread granola out evenly on a sheet pan with edges. Cook for 45 minutes, stirring and rotating your mixture halfway though.

*keep an eye on it toward the end to make sure your granola doesn’t burn!
