  • Why do I like it?

This is my go-to granola recipe.  I have made it so many times and each time everyone loves it.   The house smells so great while it is baking!  The ingredients are staples in my pantry so I can always make up a batch.  The prep is easy enough that I often make multiple batches at once.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

Omitted the nuts.  I think they would taste good, but everyone in my house prefers without!

Swapped cane sugar for coconut sugar.

Omitted the cloves which are optional anyway!

Swapped molasses for brown rice syrup.  You can make it with either.  It comes out a darker color with the molasses, but the flavor is great with either.

Lined the baking sheet with parchment paper.

Baked for 26 minutes, rotating halfway through at 13 minutes.  Your oven may vary.

If you are using maple syrup that is cold from the fridge, you need to warm it up before adding to the coconut oil or the oil will harden.  Another option is to add all the wet ingredients to a bowl and sit over a pan of hot water to melt.
