Serves 32 (about 1/4 cup each).

All you need:

2 3/4 c. Hy-Vee quick oats
1 c. chopped Hy-Vee pecans
1 c. Hy-Vee dried cranberries
1/3 c. dried pumpkin seeds
1 medium Granny Smith apple, seeded and diced
1 tbsp Hy-Vee cinnamon
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 c. packed Hy-Vee brown sugar
1/3 c. Hy-Vee Select 100% pure maple syrup
1/3 c. Hy-Vee Select olive oil

All you do:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, pecans, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, apple, cinnamon and salt.
In a small saucepan, warm the sugar, syrup and olive oil over low heat until the sugar has just dissolved. Fold syrup mixture into oat mixture, stirring to coat well.
Spread granola over prepared baking sheet. Bake until dry and lightly golden, about 30 to 35 minutes, stirring granola a few times. Remove granola from oven. Allow to cool to room temperature before transferring to a storage container.
