Maple-Nut Granola

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.

"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!!! "

Easy and great tasting!

Made this for the first time. I halved the maple syrup and the brown sugar since I prefer granola less sweet. For the nuts, I only used almonds and did not put any of the coconut in it. I did add some hemp hearts.

Will make this again and add something different. I love the versatility of this recipe!

Fast to put together, easy
Great breakfast

I have tried this recipe several times and it's just great. Since my husband is not fond of coconut chips i replace it with flaxseed. You can also use orange juice in place of water for enhanced flavour.

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.

Ha ha I autocorrected to academics but I mean MACADEMIAS!!!!!!

Simple and delicious

Super easy to make, and really good. My go to granola.

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
