  • 5 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1/3 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Sel Magique Classic Blend
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup melted butter, unsalted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbs rum
  • 2 drops vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees f
  • In a large bow, mix together all dry ingredients. Add butter, maple syrup, rum, nutmeg and vanilla to evenly coat the oats. Add nuts and dates and combine.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment, spread mixture evenly, and bake for 30 minutes. Remove, stir well, and redistribute on the sheet. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Ovens differ - and watch as you bake, a light golden brown color is the goal.
  • Remove and let cool (cooling will crisp the granola). Serve with milk (whole, oat, almond ...) over yogurt, with fresh fruit. Enjoy as a dessert with ice cream.
