Ingredients
  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup ground flaxseed
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup currants
  • ¼ cup finely chopped candied ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, mix oats with flaxseed, almonds, coconut, currants, ginger, and salt. In another bowl, whisk maple syrup with oil, vanilla, and orange juice. Pour over oat mixture and stir until well-mixed.
  2. Spread out on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake until oats are golden, about 20 minutes.
  3. Remove pan from the oven and place on a rack to cool. Granola will crisp as it cools.
  4. Serve over yogurt or however you like it.
Notes
You could easily amp up the ginger flavor if this with addition of up to a teaspoon of ground ginger. If you wanted a more citrus-y flavor, add up to a teaspoon of grated orange zest. Or both. Why not?
