2) Add salt, cinnamon, dried fruit and orange zest. Stir!
3) Drizzle the maple syrup, orange juice, and canola oil. Stir until all covered evenly.
4) Pop in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes then stir it around. Repeat till light brown and crisp, like the photo, 2 photos below.

This batch was cooked perfectly! (photo below) The one with the milk, was not cooked perfectly.

Add some almond milk, fresh fruit, and it makes an amazing breakfast! - Lost track of time and over cooked a little ! haha 


  1. This looks delicious! I could even make granola bars out of this recipe so I could eat it on the go.

    1. Thank you so much!! Yes that is a great idea, I might have to try that myself! :)

  2. Can i substitute maple syrup with honey? Would the taste differ?
