Haaaappy Monday! Now it’s officially back to reality … how’s everyone adjusting? Nothing is really different around here, aside from the fact that we have officially eaten all our “holiday food” so it’s time to reeeeally start the healthy eating again.

I know I posted a Healthy Blueberry Muffin Smoothie on Friday, but really, Friday was a holiday and then it was the weekend, soooooo healthy eating officially didn’t need to start until today. 😉

That’s where this vegan granola recipe comes in.

It’s something I can snack on without all the guilt, but it still completely satisfies my snacking loving self.

It’s crunchy, it’s sweet, it’s salty, and it’s full of nuts to keep me full!

2016 healthy eating resolution? Bring. It. Oooooon.

People always think that eating healthy is hard.

I get it, sometimes throwing in that frozen pizza is easier than whipping up a homemade meal.

But the thing is, it doesn’t have to be!

For me? It’s all about the prep.

If I can prep healthy foods at the beginning of the week, it’s so much easier for me to stay on track.

For breakfast? I typically have my healthy egg muffin cups on hand.

For lunch? When Trevor was working out of the house, I would prep lunches for both of us on Sunday and he could just grab his and go in the mornings. Now, I always have a bag of baby spinach, shredded carrots, and hard boiled eggs ready to go for whenever we’re hungry.

For dinner? Well, usually it’s leftovers since we have this thing called a food blog 😉 , but before that I’d usually make a big pot of broccoli lentil soup or something in the crockpot to eat all week.

For snacks? Well that gets a little tougher for me. I love, love, LOVE snacking on apples… and cottage cheese is great and all, but sometimes I need something a liiiittle more interesting to munch on, like this vegan granola.

I now make a batch (or two) on Sunday and have my snacks all ready to go for the rest of the week.

Worried about snacking too much? Portion the granola out and put it in little baggies. I, however, just store them in mason jars…because it’s cute. 😉

I love that this vegan granola recipe helps me snack healthier during the week. It’s SO easy and this recipe really only takes a few minutes to prep.

Simply stir together your dry ingredients: oats, pecans, almonds, whole wheat flour, salt, and cinnamon and set aside.

Now whisk together your wet ingredients: coconut oil, maple syrup <– natural sweetener, and vanilla and then pour the wet ingredients into the dry.

Spread on to a baking sheet and cook it up!

Once it’s cooked and cooled, store in your choice of container. So easy, right? But did I mention how freakin’ tasty this granola is?

No?

Oh. Well…this granola is FREAKIN’ TASTY. The different textures from the oatmeal, nuts, and coconut make this snack completely not boring and I love the toasted nutty taste combined with the cinnamon, vanilla, and sweet maple syrup.

This vegan granola recipe is …

1. Quick and easy to make.

2. Healthy.

3. Totally tasty.

Love what you guys have been doing with the videos lately! Very cool, fun & hip! 😉 Happy New Year! Good things are coming your way this year, I can feel it! 🙂

Thanks Staci!! We’ve been having fun playing around with the videos. 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words. 🙂


This is my new favorite granola recipe! The maple is not overpowering and blends deliciously with the cinnamon and vanilla. My whole family loves it!

oh my gosh—I have starting making my weekly menus based on your delcious–have everything already in my pantry–easy recipes! Started w/the monkey bread and was hooked! Doing a double batch of granola today since the first batch didn’t last long! <3

I have made this 5 times now, so I had better review it! It’s delicious. Not too dry, not too soggy, a great combo of flavours.
The first 2 times I made it, maple syrup was not in the budget, so I used corn syrup (which I believe you call Karo syrup in the US?). Yes, even Canadians sometimes can’t afford maple syrup 😛 It was good, but with maple syrup it’s better!
Also recommend the granola bar recipe made from this recipe. There’s only one vegan in our house, but everyone eats this stuff. Thanks for this.

Have you ever ever made overnight oats or granola with steel cut oats…
Stumbled on your blog and have printed some recipes to try starting tomorrow to help feed those attending a young mom’s program at church!

This looks delicious and I can’t wait to make it. Do you think I could substitute something for (or omit) the wheat flour?–to make it gluten-free. Thanks!

Great recipe thank you! I replace maple syrup by agave syrup and did not add vanilla extract because I am cheap haha but it turned out good. The coconut oil makes is very crispy! Thanks a lot!

hi guys we made this on Friday night and they are almost all gone now by Sunday evening!
I followed exactly your recipe, the granola is crunchy and full of flavors, and the simple ingredients made it so healthy, no guilt to keep munching it…lol (although we should stop doing that.)
Thank you! I’ll continue to make this!

This is an awesome recipe, thank you for sharing. I didn’t have a few ingredients, like the coconut and almonds, but it still came out perfect. I’m so happy I don’t have to go out and buy granola. I now know I can make it myself and that makes me a happy camper! Thanks again!


I made this today and really enjoy it! Thanks for posting this recipe. I substituted the flour for Bob’s Red Mill almond flour. My husband is even excited to try this!
