Healthy Granola Recipe

Updated: Apr 21

If you are looking for quick and easy recipes for breakfast or snacks, using granola is a great way to start. Granola can be used in many different ways. From eating just like that for a snack or use it for cereal.

Vegan Granola

There are 8 components that I believe to make a great granola recipe.

  • Base (Grain): Oat or Rice Puff

  • Seed: Sunflower, pumpkin, flaxseed, chia seed.

  • Nut: Almond, Pecan, Walnut, cashew, or even hazelnut.

  • Dried Fruit: Gogi Berry, Freeze-dried fruit, coconut flake

  • Oil: Coconut oil, Canola oil, or any other neutral flavor oil. (I love using coconut oil for more health benefit but any other oil works well.)

  • Sweetener: Pure Maple Syrup, Mashed banana, agave syrup or any wet sweetener.

  • Flavor(Optional): Vanilla extract, cocoa powder, cinnamon or any spices.

  • Something extra: Chia seed, Flaxseed, or anything that will add extra nutrition value.
