Easy Vegan Granola Recipe

We are constantly looking for yummy, good-for-you snacks.  Our family recently discovered that we all really love granola! I mean, what’s not to love?  Oats, nuts, dried fruits, maple syrup, all baked until it’s toasted and golden brown.  Drooling yet?  While store-bought granola is good, there is nothing quite like homemade granola.  I’m excited to share this vegan granola recipe that is not only delicious, but so easy to make!

A Versatile Snack

Granola makes a great breakfast or snack and is great on yogurt, smoothie bowls, with fruit, on ice cream, with almond milk or even on its own!  Since we made our first batch this week, we have been trying it in every way we can think of.  It’s interesting to see how we all eat it differently. My 12-year-old prefers to eat it straight out of a bowl, on its own.  My 8-year-old eats it like cereal with some almond milk.  My 5-year-old eats it with strawberries, for breakfast.  My husband loves it on top of dairy free yogurt with berries.  I personally love it on smoothie bowls (which by the way is the next recipe I will be sharing this week, so stay tuned!) I love that we can make a big batch and enjoy it in so many different ways!

You can add raisins or other dried fruits, brown sugar, different types of nuts (almonds or walnuts maybe)… the possibilities are endless. We’ve even thrown some in a little container to take with us. It’s a great on the go snack!  The best part is, it only takes 5 minutes to prep with my easy-read measuring cup set, small mix ‘n scraper, stainless steel whisk and my other awesome new Pampered Chef kitchen tools!

  2. We’ve been making granola for years and I always enjoy trying a new recipe. I love granola but the usual one I get has so many raisins and nuts, I like that you can control how much you put in of each type if you make your own. Love the tropical taste also, this looks delicious. I love all their Grains.

  3. I love granola and I always make one but I haven’t tried putting coconut. Will try this next time.

  6. Homemade granolas are the best because you can put anything that you want in it. I love it with pecans, walnuts, and cranberries.

  7. Homemade granola is so much better than storebought. Most of it has honey in it, though, so it’s nice to see a vegan recipe!

  8. What a great and healthy recipe. I am going to try this out for our next road trip to have something tasty on hand that isn’t processed!

  9. Awesome recipe! I love eating oats and granola. I tried one time to make my own granola and I had to eat it myself because nobody liked it. This recipe sounds delicious. I will try it soon.

  10. This is the best way to start a day! I love granola so I am sure I will love this one. This looks so delicious!

  11. When I’m to have a tight day, I run for a heavier breakfast that usually includes some granola with yoghurts or a smoothie. And it sorts me! Your recipe is just as yummy!

  12. Nice suggestion. I am inspired. Today, I had overnight oatmeal with yogurt and chia seeds. Tomorrow, maybe I can have this. 🙂

  41. This is something I am willing to try because buying granola in the grocery is a bit expensive. Similarly, adding fiber to one’s food will definitely make us healthier beings!

  43. I love granola anyway you can give it to me. This looks absolutely amazing and I will definitely try it.
