Maple Syrup Granola Recipe

Everyone thinks of granola as a healthy breakfast option, but did you know that many shop bought varieties contain a load of sugar? I prefer to make mine at home, it is so much cheaper and really easy to do. I just pop it in the oven when I’m pottering around in the kitchen making dinner. It stores in an airtight jar for ages – well, it doesn’t last long in our house! I serve it with yoghurt and honey. Serve with dairy free yoghurt or almond milk if you are following a plant based diet.

Recipe: Maple Syrup Granola


  • Porridge Oats
  • Mixed nuts/seeds/dried fruits
  • Maple syrup


  1. Blitz up your dried fruit and nut mix until it is a texture that you are happy with. I do mine quite fine so that the children eat it without complaining it has bits in.
  2. Mix this with oats until you have the combination that you like – you can vary the amount of oats depending on how nutty / fruity you like your granola.
  3. Add maple syrup until your granola just starts to stick together.
  4. Spread your mixture on baking trays in a thin layer and cook in the oven on a low heat, stirring often until it has crisped up.

It is honestly the loveliest breakfast and perfect as a little snack too if you fancy a sweet treat.

    This looks amazing, I’ve never been a fan of the shop brought ones. Didn’t realise it was this simple to make either. On my to do list now! #tastytuesdays
