The Best Almond Butter Granola

The Best Almond Butter Granola

Homemade granola is probably one of my favourite things ever, and arguably, one of the best foods on the planet. There is NOTHING, and I mean nothing, like fresh warm granola (that you made yourself) coming out of the oven and filling your home with sweet, cinnamon-y goodness. Daaaamn that’s the good stuff!

People ALWAYS ask me for my granola recipe, and the truth is, I did not come up with this myself (although I wish I did). It is from the genius that is Angela from Oh She Glows, and I usually make a modification of the recipe that’s on her app – which is amazing, by the way, if you don’t already have it. This granola is the absolute perfect combination of crunchy nuts, sweet vanilla, rich almond butter and a sprinkle of sea salt to really bring out the sweetness. It is lower in sugar than many other granolas, but it tastes SO decadent – which is what I love about it!

This recipe makes a huge batch because it never lasts me more than a couple of weeks (and I live alone…lol) and I promise it’ll be the same for you. It’s THAT addictive. I love this in yogurt bowls, on top of smoothies, sprinkled onto toast/banana bread/pancakes, or just by the handful! Sometimes when I’m looking for a sweet treat after dinner, I take a big chunk of this and dip it in coconut butter. And then repeat like 5 times and shove it in my face. Lol…secret’s out!

Hope you love this as much as I do (which is a LOT), and thanks the Oh She Glows app for the incredible recipe inspiration! This is truly the only granola I make now 🙂

The BEST granola ever, made with almond butter, maple syrup, and a touch of coconut sugar + sea salt.
Emma:
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 7 cups
Gather
  • 3½ c. rolled oats
  • ¾ c. chopped nuts (I love almonds or walnuts)
  • ¼ c. pumpkin seeds (can also use sunflower, hemp, etc.)
  • ¼ c. ground flaxseed
  • ¼ c. coconut sugar (you can even lower it to 2-3 tbsp. for less sweet version)
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 6 tbsp. coconut oil
  • ½ c. pure maple syrup
  • ¼ c. almond butter (can use any nut butter here)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Create
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment (or a silicone mat).
  2. Mix the dry ingredients (oats through sea salt) in a large bowl until combined.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add your coconut oil + maple, stirring until combined and heated. Add in your almond butter and whisk until the mixture is completely smooth. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in your vanilla.
  4. Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mixtures and thoroughly stir so everything is nice and coated.
  5. Divide the mixture between your baking sheets, making sure everything is in a fairly thin layer so that it crisps up.
  6. Bake for 16-18 mins, then remove the pans and gently break/loosen the granola up with a spatula. Return the pans to the oven and bake for another 5-10 mins, checking carefully to make sure it doesn't burn. When the edges are just starting to brown, it's time to remove it!
  7. Let the granola sit on your pans for a good 10 minutes or so to crisp up. Break into pieces (as big/small as you like) and store in a sealed jar/container! It will last a few weeks - but you will eat it all before then 😉
