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!

  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the oats and walnuts and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, salt and vanilla extract. Mix well and pour over the oats.
  • 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.
  • Bake the granola at 300 degrees for 25 minutes. The oats will not be crispy yet but will crisp up as they cool.
  • 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.


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

  1. Karen says:

    Loved this recipe. I did double the maple syrup and added cinnamon and cooked about 10 mins longer. We like it sweet and darker. I only had instant oats and it still turned out so good! Love it to snack and add to my yogurt.

  2. Linda D Piazza says:

    This was easy to make, even when I forgot to set the timer and had to guestimate the cooking time. I’m 100-plant based and so substituted another 2 T of maple syrup for the honey. Because my husband wants cinnamon in everything, I also added cinnamon, but I had tasted it before adding the cinnamon and would have liked it either way. Thanks for a quick and easy granola recipe. Now I just have to stop snacking on it so I have it for breakfasts for the next few days.

  3. Jacqueline Lloyd says:

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

  4. Sabine says:

    Hello Shay, what do you mean with “C”? Is this “Cup”? Greetings from Germany, Sabine

    5 stars
    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!

  6. Michele says:

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

  7. jenna says:

    I’m a granola lover, too. In fact I have another that will be going up on my blog this week. I cannot get enough of it, though I buy it as often as I make it.

  25. Obsessed with granola. I just made a white chocolate macadamia granola and ate all the white chocolate and macadamia out of it. Oops.

    Maple + Walnut = epic combination.

  26. I am such a sucker for granola…I love any kind and yours seems delicious and simple to make. I need to get my granola baking going on soon!

  31. Evidenced by my blog, I am a HUGE granola lover! I never buy store-bought anymore! Making your own is just to much fun and delicious!

  32. I simply don’t make enough of my own granola. I love the look and sound of this dish and I want to scoop a big spoonful overtop my morning yogurt.

  33. I’m with you. After I made my first batch of homemade, I couldn’t buy it from the store any more!

  34. Kirsten says:

    Homemade granola is da bomb! I like to eat my granola with kefir, and no one else in the family likes it so it’s all for me!
    This looks delicious–I’m sure the maple walnut combo is a terrific one.

  35. My hubster is ALL about granola…but, confession, I always buy it!
    Worst food blogger EVER.
    But this looks so easy, and the Canadian in me loves that maple goodness! Pinned 🙂
