This is my first time making Granola and it is very good. I make refridgerator oatmeal yogurt and this granola goes very well with that or all by itself. I just posted Granola Bites with Figs & Dates that this Granola is used in. It has been a big hit with our family. It is from a healthy cookbook. And once again I am not taking credit for it we just loved it and wanted to share. I made a few changes to the original; I added extra Tablespoon each of oil, maple syrup and honey because it needed a little more moisture.

How to Make Easy Maple Granola


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
    In a bowl, combine oil, syrup, honey and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, toss oats with kasha, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt, almonds and pecans. Add oil mixture to oat mixture and stir until well combined. Transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and spread out evenly.
  3. Bake in center of preheated oven, stirring half way through, until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Granola can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
  4. I am also posting a recipe called Granola Bites with Figs and Dates that uses this granola as a base.
