Best ever granola recipe

Cranberry coconut granola

Trust me, it’s quite good…

This is an adaptation of a recipe I found online. I made some modifications to it, including omitting the almonds because I am allergic (you can add those back in if you want!). I’ve tried using different types of nuts but my favourites are the two below plus I sometimes switch it up with macadamia and pumpkins seeds.

I would really like to use coconut oil instead of olive oil but, when I tried to, it didn’t quite turn out the same… going to keep looking for another alternative.


  1. 3 1/2 cups rolled oats
  2. 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  3. 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 1 tsp cinnamon
  6. 1/3 cup raw cane sugar
  7. 1/2 cup olive oil
  8. 1/3 cup maple syrup


Preheat oven at 325F. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl. Spread mixture on a pan but avoid spreading all the way to the sides. Bake for approximately 20 – 25 minutes (granola should be golden brown and bubbly in the middle). Store in an air-tight container after cooling.

I hope you like it!
