Maple Almond Granola

I love granola. It is so yummy with milk, on top of yogurt, on top of smoothies, any way! And I always seem to forget how easy it is to make. Yesterday A asked me if I had any granola (I didn't. Fail.), so I quickly planned to make some this afternoon. I just pulled this out of the oven, my apartment smells incredible, and wanted to share before I forget again. Yummy, simple, and quick maple almond granola.

Maple Almond Granola
Makes approx. 2 cups
1 T. nut butter (I like almond or peanut)
1 T. oil (olive, coconut, or butter)
1-2 T. maple syrup (sweeten to your taste)
1 T. chia seeds
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups oats
1/3 cup almonds, chopped.

Place nut butter and oil in class dish and microwave for 10 seconds. Stir in maple syrup, chia seeds, and cinnamon until well combined. Add the oats and almonds, mixing until well combined.
Spread mixture evenly on a greased baking sheet and bake at 300* for 25-30 minutes. At 20 min, take out the pan and stir. Continue baking 5-10 more minutes, watching closely to make sure is doesn't burn!

Note: This is really more of a method than a recipe. Feel free to change up the nuts, nut butter, mix-ins, etc. Make it yours and enjoy!



  1. Oh my gosh yummmm! I have always been too scared to make granola from scratch, but I seriously need to try this!

  2. Homemade granola is SO good and I usually start my morning with it sprinkled over my greek yogurt. Can't wait to try this recipe!
