Good Morning: Our Homemade Granola


Hey Folks,

We've been giving away our home-baked granola to guests at the end of our suppers so they can savor a little extra bite of Brooklyn Edible Social Club the next morning with their breakfast. 

We love the salty and herbal tones from the olive oil and sel gris balancing the smoky sweetness from the maple syrup and tart hints from the sun-dried blueberries. Simple flavors that combine perfectly to create a more complex but easy complement for fresh Ronnybrook's yogurt.

We're proud to showcase ingredients from awesome New York state's small farms like Cayuga pure organics, Van Glad Brothers & Dancing Ewe in this granola. You guys should try them in your next visit to the Greenmarket.

Now, here is the recipe for our granola. Hope you enjoy a good morning, early birds!


- 7 cups Rolled Grain Cereal (Oats, Rye, Barley, Wheat) Or Just Rolled Oats
Cayuga Pure Organics Farm, Brooktondale, NY

- 1 cup Wood Homestead Maple Syrup "Grade A - Dark Amber"
Van Glad Brothers Farm, Stamford, NY

- 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Dancing Ewe Farm, Granville, NY

- 1 1/2 tsp Sel Gris Or Other Coarse Sea Salt

- 2 cups Unsalted Sliced Almonds

- 1 1/2 cups Sun-Dried Wild Blueberries

How to make it:

Preheat your oven to 325 F degrees, meanwhile in a large bowl mix well with your hands the cereal, salt, olive oil and maple syrup.  Put the mix in a baking pan.

Bake until golden, then gently turn and bake again for about 5 more minutes. Remove from the oven and add the blueberries and almonds, mix again. Let cool down...easy like that!
