Homemade Granola

Pure maple syrup makes a darn tasty homemade granola.


  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup


Servings 20

Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In large bowl, mix all of the ingredients together. After everything is thoroughly mixed, pour it out onto the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 20-30 minutes; stir every 10 minutes. The granola is done baking when it is a light golden brown. Be careful not to over bake it.

Allow it to cool on the cookie sheet. As it cools it will become crunchy. Once cool; store in zip-lock bag to maintain freshness.

This granola is only slightly sweet. You can add extra brown sugar if you prefer a sweeter version. Or be creative and come up with your own custom blend.

    I am a HUGE fan of granola! But being on Weight Watchers it tends to be a big NO NO!! However, this recipe sounds amazing and I may just have to try it out. Maybe tweak it just a bit to fit within points ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for sharing!
