Made with only three ingredients, this ridiculously easy granola recipe comes together in minutes. Just mix and bake for perfect granola! Top with dried fruit, nuts, and your favorite spices for a real breakfast treat.
Preheat the oven to 275 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk the oil and maple syrup together in a large mixing bowl. If adding salt, add a pinch to the liquid and whisk it in. Add the oats and mix vigorously with a spatula or large spoon until all the oats are evenly coated.
Pour half of the oats on one parchment-lined baking sheet, and the other half of the oats on the other parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread out the oats evenly across each sheet.
Bake 45 minutes. The granola will smell toasted and look slightly darker than it was when it was unbaked. Remove the sheets from the oven, and allow the granola to cool completely on the baking sheets. Store airtight when completely cool.
To make gluten free, be sure to use gluten free old fashioned oats.
