Maple Walnut Granola

Maple Walnut Granola


I’ve always loved granola. What I’ve learned I love even more is preparing it at home. It’s so much better for you. Now, if only I could convert the rest of the family to ditch the store bought cereal and only have homemade granola, we’d be set. But, they are not there and it’s a bit of them against me…for now.

This granola is wholesome and a little bit goes a long way. I’ve always been a fan of walnuts and this combo works well together.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

Preparation:

Position rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 300 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with either a silicon mat or line with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, combine together the oats and walnuts. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, vanilla extract and salt. Pour the liquid mixture over the oats and walnuts, stirring to incorporate and oats and nuts are well coated. Lay evenly on prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before breaking apart. Ensuring that it’s cooled completely will aid in crisping the granola. Store in an air-tight container.
