Easy Vanilla Maple Granola
Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of delicious granola options at the grocery store. BUT, do you know how easy it is to make homemade granola make yourself? And then you can customize with your favorites. Combine your favorite nuts, seeds, dried fruit, maybe some coconut or oats. Add something for some sweetness and bake it all up on a sheet pan. Once you make this Vanilla Maple Granola, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
What You’ll Need for this Homemade Vanilla Maple Granola:
- Rolled Oats (also called Old Fashioned)
- Sliced Almonds
- Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
- Olive Oil
- Maple Syrup – the pure good stuff!
- Optional – Turbinado Sugar
Mix everything up and spread on a large baking sheet. Or, if you hate washing dishes like me…. Mix it all up with your hands on the baking sheet itself. Bake the granola up for about 40 minutes – stirring halfway through. Once done baking, let the Vanilla Maple Granola cool on the pan. This helps it clump together in those wonderful crunchy clumps.
