Homemade granola baking in the oven has to be one of the best and most comforting aromas in the world. Just imagining the heavenly scent of cinnamon, almond and maple syrup filling the house is enough to make me want to make another batch of this Fig, Almond + Maple Granola.
This granola recipe is simple, nutritious and downright divine. It’s a recipe I originally made for Universal Store, but it’s too good not to share with you all!
For a perfect breakfast add some granola in a bowl with fresh strawberries and yogurt. I also love sprinkling it generously atop banana ice cream, or simply popping some in a ziplock bag for a delicious on-the-go snack.
Fig, Almond + Maple Granola
Makes one large jar.
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup buckwheat groats
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup almonds, roughly chopped
1/3 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
1/2 cup pepitas
1/3 shredded coconut
3 tbsp coconut oil melted
2 tsbp maple syrup
1/2 cup chopped dried figs
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius and place some baking paper on a large baking tray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (minus the dried figs) and mix well.
Then add in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup and combine so everything is coated in coconutty, maple goodness.
Transfer the granola onto the baking tray and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Be sure to stir the granola after 10-15 minutes to ensure the granola is evenly toasted.
