Homemade granola is a comfort food breakfast of champions. Full of oats and nuts, dried fruit, spices, and quite honestly anything you can think of.
My recipe is directly inspired by Nekisia Davis of Early Bird Foods. Her combination of maple syrup, brown sugar, olive oil, and salt bring the standard homemade granola to new heights. I had to taste her creation when I learned Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park uses a version of her recipe as a guest “party favour”. If you are not familiar with Eleven Madison Park it is a dining experience you won’t ever forget. When a three Michelin star chef takes notice and brings the recipe to his “home” you need to dig deeper.
I have kept the base of the recipe the same, however I chose to add some variety of layering to the nut and grain ingredients. You can feel free to use your favourites as well.
