Units Scale
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 330 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine rolled oats, almonds, pecans, cashews, hemp seeds, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and cloves in a large bowl. Mix together. 
  3. In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, melted coconut oil (see notes if your coconut oil is solid), molasses, and vanilla extract. Mix together. 
  4. Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients. Combine until everything is evenly coated. 
  5. Spread mixture across the baking sheet in a thin layer.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring the granola halfway through. After, allow the granola to cool completely before serving or storing away. 


  • If your coconut oil is solid, melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then, measure 1/4 cup and proceed with the recipe. 
  • The granola will firm while cooling. It should appear slightly undercooked when you remove it from the oven. 
  • Store granola in an airtight jar or container. It should remain fresh for at least one week.
