Maple-Nut Granola

November/December 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (87 votes)

We love the maple-nut flavor combination of this heart-healthy granola, but feel free to substitute your favorite nuts or dried fruit for your own custom blend.



READER'S COMMENT:
"A very good granola. I reduced the amount of sweeteners by one half and it was still satisfactory. I would assume that you could leave the sweetenerers out and use the sweetener of your choice when you eat. Bill!!! "

Great granola but 1.5 hours is too long!

I add an egg white both for binding and protein. I delete all the fruit and use only syrup. I add academics, pecans and sunflowers to equal two cups. Also I flavor with cinnamon and almond extract. It is the only granola I make!!!!

Like others, I halved the sweetening and it adapted easily.

Tasty but too sweet

I read the reviews beforehand and noticed that a couple of people mentioned it was too sweet, so I just added the maple syrup and it was plenty sweet. I can't imagine adding more sugar to it, especially if you add it to sweetened yogurt. Also, I used quick oats because that's what I had on hand and it turned out fine.

Good crunch and variety of stuff

Tried and True!

I've tried tons of different granola recipes over the years, but always come back to this one! Everyone who tries it raves about it. I occasionally tweak it a bit using half honey, half regular syrup, and a bit of molasses when I don't have maple syrup, and it's still awesome. Also usually add a few cashews as well. It's become our family specialty!

Perfect sweetness when brown sugar is omitted.

Tried this for the first time today. I used coconut oil instead of canola, and 1 cup dried cranberries. Added a little hemp and chia seed, and omitted the brown sugar. Its just the right amount sweet (I don't like my granola grocery store sweet - if I did, I'd buy it there!), and no flavor is too overpowering. Yum.
