Olive Oil Baked Granola

Make friends with homemade granola, a versatile kitchen player. Use it to top ice cream, as a base for granola bars, or simply eaten as a snack. Feel free to change up the dried fruits and nuts based on what'’s in your pantry. Store the granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks or in the freezer for three months.
