This vanilla almond granola is sweet, crunchy, and nutty! It’s a super easy recipe made with healthy ingredients. Sprinkle this homemade granola on top of smoothie bowls, yogurt, oatmeal, or enjoy it with almond milk. 


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil*
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Dry Ingredients: Combine rolled oats, sliced almonds, raw almonds, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Mix together.
  3. Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Mix together.
  4. Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients. Mix to evenly coat all of the oats and nuts.
  5. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Spread granola mixture across the pan in a thin layer.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove granola from the oven and allow to cool completely. Note: the granola will feel slightly underdone when you remove it from the oven. It will firm and take on a crispy, crunchy texture once cooled.


*Use liquid coconut oil or melted coconut oil. If your coconut oil is solid, add several spoonfuls to a bowl and microwave it for 30 seconds. Then, measure 1/4 cup and proceed with the recipe.
