It has taken me a lot of trial and error with multiple granola recipes, but I have finally discovered an easy homemade granola recipe that works for my family that I’m excited to share with you. This recipe is from a generous friend of mine named Cami that I met when I lived in Boulder, Colorado. Cami  was kind enough to share it with me when she noticed on instagram that I was experimenting with granola-making.

The reasons why I love this recipe more than any other one I’ve tried is that it has no refined sugar (hello maple syrup), it only needs six ingredients, and it makes my house smell amazing! I’ll be honest, my kids don’t love it as much as the sugar-packed granola I used to buy from Trader Joe’s but it still gets the job done in our morning breakfast parfaits and breakfast bowls. This granola is also a nice DIY gift idea, although we always eat it before I get the chance to share! I normally double the recipe and use two baking pans that I rotate half way through. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, thanks again Cami for letting me share this awesome recipe!

If you are wondering how you can tell when the granola is finished baking try this tip: take a spoonful of granola out of the oven and give it a minute to let it cool. If it is crispy enough then your granola is done, if it is still soft then it needs more time.

  1. Homemade granolas are one of my favorite breakfast items and your recipe looks so delicious!! I also love how simple it is and we don’t need any fancy stuff to make it 🙂

  2. I love making my own granola! Ohhh going to try this recipe next batch I make 🙂

  3. This is granola perfection! I personally think homemade granola is better than any store-bought version. I love that you know exactly what’s in it. This sounds deliciously simple. Pinning!

  4. Yummy, I could grab some milk and chow down on this. I would add like Pumpkin Spice to give it a little more flavor.

  5. I love my granola over strawberry yogurt – can’t wait to try this – yum!

  6. Yay! I am SO glad you loved this recipe! I did my last batch with sliced almonds as well. So delicious and simple and will forever be a staple.
