  • Author: Fanny Slater

  • Yield: 3 cups 1x


Shake up your standard granola with a savory mix of oats, nuts, and a fragrant herbes de Provence blend featuring thyme and rosemary.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 large egg white, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup raw shelled pistachios
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raw shelled sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw sesame seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried sumac
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbes de Provence


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, or coat with nonstick cooking oil spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, maple syrup, and egg white. In a separate bowl, combine the oats, pistachios, walnuts, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, salt, sumac, red pepper flakes, and herbes de Provence.
  3. Gently fold the olive oil mixture into the oat mixture. Spread it onto the baking sheet, evenly flattening the mixture with the back of a spatula.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and very fragrant, stirring once halfway through.
  5. Cool completely in the pan, and then break it up with your fingers, leaving some bigger clusters for more texture. Store in an airtight container at room temperature on the counter for up to 2 weeks.
