Tried and True Granola

The Granola I ALWAYS come back to!

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted.. I promise that I will rectify that situation in 2017. Life gets busy doesn’t it? I myself have had an emotional couple of months. I broke up with my partner of 10 years. That in of itself is a blog post which I will definitely get to… 

BUT this post is not about breakups, hardships or massive life changes. THIS blog post is about my kickass tried and true vegan granola recipe. I promise you will not be disappointed. 

I have been working on different variations of the same recipe now for well over a year and this one hits it out of the park. Crunchy, savoury, a hint of sweet and healthy! I plan on filling my house with this smell and giving the gift of food. Really, how great is that?! 

Might I suggest paring this Vegan Granola with my FAVORITE Homemade Cashew Milk?!

Course Breakfast


  • oven


Dry Ingredients

  • 3 cup gluten free oats
  • 1 cup roughly chopped raw almonds
  • ½ cup chopped raw pecans or raw walnuts
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup buckwheat groats
  • ½ cup desiccated unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¾ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp tsp cinnamon heaping

Wet Ingredients

  • ½ cup maple syrup (my family makes the stuff so I know it's top quality. Don't cheap out on the maple syrup. The good stuff is actually good for you! Full of magnesium, just don't drink it)
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼-½ cup nut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 325 Degrees.
  • Mix all dry ingredients.
  • Melt liquid ingredients in a small saucepan stirring to combine.
  • Add wet to dry ingredients. Lay out evenly on 1-2 baking sheets and pop it in the oven. After about 20 minutes take a peek.
  • Give a gentle mix to get less cooked granola a chance to be baked and then pop back in for another 10 min. Keep a close watch. You don't want it to burn! Wait for it to completely cool then put into mason jars.
