My family loves this maple walnut granola. I’ve made 3 batches of this in the last few weeks. It’s perfect for snacking on and it’s also great for breakfast. I love eating it like cereal with some fruit on top – so good! Adam and Kelsey prefer eating it dry and snacking on it. Either way, it’s awesome.

The first time I made this granola, it was the first time I’d ever made it from scratch. And I’m never turning back to store-bought. The great thing about homemade granola is that you can completely customize it to your taste. It’s also super easy to make. If I knew how easy it was to make granola, I would have been making it years ago.

In other news, I’m currently watching SNL’s 40th anniversary – so funny! So I don’t have too much more about this granola since I’m pretty much too busy laughing to be able to form anything coherent. So I’ll leave you with this: This maple walnut granola is waaaay better than “Colon Blow”. Enjoy!

Maple Walnut Granola

Yield: serves 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Maple Walnut Granola makes a great snack or breakfast. Enjoy it with milk as a cereal or on its own. Homemade granola is so easy to make, you’ll never go back to store-bought.

Ingredients

  • 3 C certified gluten-free oats
  • 1 C walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 C coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 C pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats and walnuts and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, salt and vanilla extract. Mix well and pour over the oats.
  4. Stir the oat mixture well until all the oats are coated with the wet ingredients. Spread the oats out on the prepared baking sheet and smooth out until you have an even layer.
  5. Bake the granola at 300 degrees for 25 minutes. The oats will not be crispy yet but will crisp up as they cool.
  6. Cool the granola completely on the baking sheet. Once cooled, break the granola up into pieces. Store in an air-tight container up to 3 weeks.

Notes

This granola is great for snacking or as a cereal. It also makes a great homemade gift!

Thanks soooo much!! Store bought granola has been disappointing. I’ll never buy it again. We all enjoy the maple nut flavor.

You're welcome! And I agree, homemade granola is way better!

Dry, not a lot of flavor. I think i needs butter or something like it. Probably a bit of maple flavoring extract to enhance the maple taste. Or a lot more maple syrup.

Made this last night and it's fabulous. I'm on weight watchers so I made it ww friendly by using sugar free maple syrup and only half the oil. Next time I'll use no oil, no honey, half almonds for the nuts to make it only 2 Smart Points per serving. Thanks for the great recipe!

Do you happen to know how long it keeps after you make it?

Hi Michele - If kept in an airtight container (like a mason jar) it will keep for about 2 weeks.
