  • ½ cup pure maple syrup

  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ cup sesame seeds

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • ¾ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • ½ cup golden raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix together oats, coconut, nuts, syrup, oil, sugar, sesame seeds, salt, and nutmeg. Spread granola in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet.
