Oats, Pecans, Maple, and Almonds make this Homemade Maple Granola nice and crunchy! With a few staple ingredients you can have a large batch of from-scratch granola, way better than store-bought!
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 anyway. 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 to a fabulous texture and sweetness.
I had never made granola before but knew it couldn’t be that hard. I was right! ( funny how that happens 😉 ) This granola was super easy to make and super tasty.
I found myself grabbing handfuls of the stuff. I will defo be homemade maple granola again.
I hope you give this easy recipe a try and spruce up your breakfast!
How do you make Homemade Maple Granola?
The beauty of granola is how easy it is to make. In a large bowl mix together the oats, almonds, and pecans. Then in a small bowl mix together the maple syrup, honey, coconut oil, and maple syrup. Then pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture, make sure that everything is coated evenly. Press firmly into a baking tray, this helps with making granola clusters. Bake and let cool in pan. Then drizzle with a little more honey and maple syrup- this is optional.
How long does homemade granola last?
I store mine in an airtight container for up to two weeks if it lasts that long!
