Homemade Maple Granola

Homemade Maple Granola www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com Β As of late here in Southern California the sun has been shinning. Bikini season is almost here. Juice bars have been popping up everywhere and my yoga pants have been gettings lots of use. I wanted to ease up on the sugar, for that morning anyways. So I made some granola to go with my plain greek yogurt. Have you ever had plain greek yogurt? Ugh I cannot do it! So I decided to add granola for a fabulous texture and sweetness.

    1. Yes Court it has been a great start to my days! All gone now :/ I have been using coconut oil in lots of things lately, for years I have used it in Carrot Cake but finding more uses as it has gotten so popular. Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes with only coconut oil coming up next week πŸ™‚

  1. Was looking to make granola for the first time and found this on Pinterest and de used to make it- delicious! Thanks for sharing. The only thing I would choose is to shorten the cooking time slightly after stirring the granola and putting it back in for 10 minutes instead of the 15 said above, my granola had a slightly overbooked smell to it when I took it out if the oven.

  2. The other day I decided I would make this granola, when I went to look in the pantry for the rolled oats, we only had the small kind! So I made my Mom go out the next day to buy me some large flake rolled oats.
    I made the granola today and my family went crazy over it (including me, of course). I was trying to get them to save some for breakfast in the morning but honestly it’s almost all gone!
    So delicious, we won’t be buying store bought cereal anymore!

    1. Yay! Farrah I am so happy you liked it! I love this, I am really craving it right now, might have to fix that! Thank you so much for letting me know you made it and like it, it really does make my day πŸ™‚

  3. Loved this! I am allergic to nuts, so I added 1/2 c steel cut oats. I didn’t have the maple extract, so I added 1 tsp real almond extract. Also my baking time needed to be a bit less. It browned nicely on round 2 in the oven by around 12 minutes instead of 15. Definitely keeping this recipe!
