We are huge fans of homemade granola; it's such a cheap, easy breakfast that can be customized to taste. But we had never thought of adding olive oil. It makes perfect sense: the rich, fruity tastes of olive oil roasted in the oven with nuts and oats would be absolutely delicious.
But why stop at olive oil? We're thinking about trying walnut or hazelnut oil too, drizzled over the hot granola right after baking. (Cooking at high heat destroys the flavors of more delicate nut oils.)
Have you ever used olive oil or another kind of oil in your granola? Are you going to try Clark's recipe?
