This looks delicious! I love maple anything too- its really big by me to get local maple, which is a total game changer as well! I’d love for you to share a post at my link up tomorrow, if you’re interested! There’s an explanation of what it is on my main menu under ‘Tell ’em Tuesdays’

This looks amazing! I need to try this, although I’ve never worked with chia seeds before. Do they have a distinct flavor? Or is there anything else I should know?

chia seeds do not have a flavor really, they end up being more crunchy after the oatmeal is baked. however, chia seeds, if soaked in water, can absorb the water creating a puddingy like consistency. I often use them in overnight oatmeal (1/2 cup oats, 1 cup almond milk, 1 tablespoon chia seeds- put in a jar in the fridge overnight) in the morning the chia seeds will have soaked up all the liquid!- pretty cool. but in regards to granola, it is just a great source of fiber 🙂
