How to make homemade maple cinnamon granola
The base of any granola recipe is rolled oats, sweetener, oil, and the flavorings. There are so many ways to flavor your granola, but here’s what you’ll need for this delicious maple cinnamon flavor:
- Rolled oats
- Chopped walnuts or pecans, or a mix of both
- Refined coconut oil
- Pure maple syrup
- Coconut sugar
- Vanilla extract
Toss everything together in a bowl, then flatten the mixture onto a baking sheet. Bake on a low temperature for about 25-30 minutes, until crispy! The hardest part is waiting for it to cool to break it apart, but definitely worth it! 🙂
Pro tip: add some freeze-fried apples to the mix after the granola is baked for a delicious apple cinnamon flavored granola!
This delicious maple cinnamon granola is sweet, crunchy, and the perfect little snack prep for the week. Serve it over yogurt, with some milk, or alone as a snack.
