Maple Nut Granola

Maple Nut Granola | www.diethood.com

I’m serving something a tad bit healthier today. It’s granola!

I think after that pie, whipped cream and cake, it’s time for some balance. We talked about balance on here before so it’s fair to say that I warned you about a healthier treat now and then.

But, once you have a taste of this Maple Nut Granola, you won’t even care whether it’s healthy or not. I mean, seriously, there’s maple syrup in here. Is it still considered healthy? But, it is homemade, and homemade is always better and healthier than store-bought.

The crunchy texture of this granola will have you nibbling away straight from the palm of your hand. I can’t let go of it until it’s all gone. I suck on the oats just to get every bit of that sweet taste in my mouth. As if you don’t do that. Sure, I throw it over some fruit and cereal, but a girl’s gotta snack, too.

You know what’s great about this recipe? You can totally customize this granola to your own liking. More pecans, less almonds, dried fruit, no fruit… it’s up to you. Then just add it to your cereal, yogurt, or fruit. Or do as I do – grab the jar, stick your hands in, and eat!

I always make granola in large batches and store it in glass jars or in an airtight container. It keeps good for weeks.

ENJOY!

    I know this is an old post, but do you have any idea what the calorie count is for this delicious recipe? 🙂

  2. Oh, granola is one of my weaknesses! I can leave all the cakes, pies and breads alone, but I can eat many cups of granola. Yours looks fantastic, Kate!

  3. Yes, pie, cake and whipped cream are all good, but so is balance :-). I have been meaning to make some homemade granola for a long time now…your version looks delicious, especially with the maple syrup which I have been using a lot of lately. Pinning this to try ASAP!
