Easy Vegan Granola Recipe-3

I love granola almost as much as I love muesli. Well, I probably love it a lot more but since it generally has a higher sugar content I try to limit it. Not when I make it though! This is a pretty basic recipe for easy granola. The whole thing only has a 1/4 cup of oil for the whole batch, and the batch is very big. Make half the batch if you want things to be a bit more respectable but it keeps pretty well.

Easy Vegan Granola Recipe-2

Choose whatever dried nuts and fruit you like best. I used a mixture of peanuts, slivered almonds and cashews because I had them on hand. Experiment with what you like. Same with the dried fruit. 1.5 cups of any dried fruit would work. This recipe doesn’t clump much because there’s not a lot of moisture. It’s still great, but if you want bigger clumps add a bit of water or a 1/4 cup extra coconut oil.

Easy Vegan Granola Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300F for 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, coconut, nuts, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Heat the oil and maple syrup in the microwave oven for 20 seconds. Pour it over the oat mixture.
  4. Add the vanilla extract and stir until all the ingredients are combined.
  5. Spread the granola onto a half sheet baking pan, bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  6. Place the pan on a wire rack, stir in the dried fruits, and push the granola to one side of the pan while cooling. This ensures that the granola will cool with some clusters.
  7. Keeps well for a month if stored in an airtight container.
