Our partners over at GrandyOats are on to something with this hearty, flavorful, just-sweet-enough recipe to kick off the fall season.
Granolas have long been a staple of the American diet—we enjoy it in our cereal, yogurt, in an energy-boosting trail mix, and even just as is. GrandyOats has been cranking out their mix of oats, nuts, and honey for over 15 years in the lakes region of Western Maine. Of course, they know granola to be one of the most common breakfast foods, but to them it’s also become a lifestyle—one that’s built on the principles of supporting people, profits, and the planet. In other words, they hold their granola to some seriously high standards. Their batches are hand mixed in small amounts to achieve ideal flavor, made with local and organic ingredients whenever possible, free of artificial ingredients, and made in a 100% solar-powered facility.

What You’ll Need:
1 cup sugar
2⁄3 cup oil
1 1⁄2 cups flour
3⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 1⁄2cups finely grated carrots
1 cup GrandyOats Classic Granola
What to Do:
Beat the eggs in a large mixing bow. Add in sugar and oil and beat thoroughly before pouring the rest of the dry ingredients into the egg mixture.
Stir in the grated carrots and Classic Granola and mix well. Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with a nonstick spray and then pour in the batter. You can also use two 1-lb pans if you’d prefer smaller loaves.
Bake at 350° for about an hour (40 minutes for the smaller pans). Once it’s out of the oven, let it cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes before removing it and allowing it to completely cool.
