Homemade Maple Nut Granola

Maple nut granola and other breakfast cereals are expensive and come in a lot of packaging. 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 have several recipes that my family enjoys, but this maple nut version is my favorite!

You can experiment with your own version of granola or try this easy recipe!

      Good question, Todd!
      I buy mostly organic ingredients in bulk from my co-ops, so my price may be quite different from that of granola made with conventionally grown products. My estimate is about $6 for this batch of granola and it makes about 8 cups. When we were buying organic granola, I was probably paying abou $4 for a box about 1/3 the size…so this is quite a bit cheaper. I also get free maple syrup from family. 🙂

      If you purchase regular indredients from the store and maybe substitute honey for the maple syrup, you could probably get your cost down to about $4 -5 per batch.

      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!
