Don't serve this granola with milk! Use it to garnish salads, roasted veggies, sauteed greens or mashed sweet potatoes. (Or just snack on it. So good!)

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325°. Line a 15×10-inch baking pan with parchment paper. In a bowl, combine oats, pepitas, hazelnuts, almonds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, fennel seeds and cumin seeds. In a saucepan, combine olive oil, honey, 1 tablespoon water, the salt, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, crushed red pepper and smoked paprika. Heat over low, stirring, until mixture resembles a syrup. Pour over dry ingredients and stir until evenly coated. Spread in an even layer in prepared pan.

  • Bake until light brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Push granola to center of pan; cool completely without disturbing. (This allows clusters to form.) Store granola in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 weeks or freeze up to 3 months.
