Homemade Maple Nut Granola

Granola and other breakfast cereals are rather pricey in the grocery store. In addition, granola often contains a higher fat content than I want. That’s why I started experimenting with my own granola recipes years ago. I usually just dump ingredients in a big bowl, mix it up, and tweak it if necessary. But that doesn’t translate very well into a recipe for sharing!

So today I measured everything and jotted it all down for you. I hope you like it!

Maple Nut Granola

Yield: 8 cups granola

Ingredients

  • 6 c old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 c chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 3/4 c - 1 c maple syrup
  • 1 tsp maple flavoring, optional
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon, heaping
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil

Instructions

Measure all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl and combine until oats are coated with syrup.

Spread mixture in two 9 x 13" baking dishes and place in 300F oven. Stir every 10-15 minutes. Bake until granola has dried out and is slightly crispy, about 45 minutes.

Cool to room temperature on a wire rack and place in an airtight container for storage.

Note: You may add 1 tsp ground nutmeg or cloves for more flavor!

      Happy to share 🙂 Steel cut oats are chopped up and old fashioned rolled oats are steamed and rolled for a faster cooking cereal. Hope this helps!
