Preheat the oven to 350F
In a large bowl combine the oats, maple syrup, avocado oil and maple syrup. Stir well. Let sit at least 2 minutes and stir again, giving the oats a minute to soak up the liquid.
Line a large baking sheet (or 2 smaller baking sheets) with parchment paper or silicone liners. Spray with non-stick spray.
Pour the granola onto the pan (or divide it between 2 pans evenly). Use the back of a spoon or a spatula to evenly distribute the granola into one layer on the baking sheet.
Once the granola is in one layer, use the back of a spoon or spatula and press down firmly on the granola. This will help make the clusters form.
Bake in the 350F oven for 21 minutes.
Take out of the oven and allow the granola to cool completely for 15-20 minutes.
Carefully break up the granola. Store in an airtight container after fully cooling.
Serving size is 1/4 cup.
You can store this homemade vegan granola for up to 1 week in the fridge (for best texture and taste). You can also store it in individual portions in the freezer for a longer storage life.
Maple syrup is used for sweetness and to help the granola form into clusters. If you don’t have maple syrup you can also try brown rice syrup or honey (not vegan)
Avocado oil is used because it doesn’t have a strong flavor. You can also use unrefined coconut oil (melted) or extra virgin olive oil.
Can you cut back on the maple syrup?
Yes, this recipe can be cut down to 1/3 of a cup of maple syrup and it still form clusters. However, anything lower than 1/3 cup of maple syrup and the granola doesn’t form clusters very well.
Other add in’s to change the flavor of this vegan granola
- Coconut flakes (buy toasted coconut flakes and add them after cooking or add coconut flakes half way through baking so they don’t burn)
- Chocolate chips (add at the end after granola is completely cooled off)
- Cacao nibs (add at the end after granola is completely cooled off)
- Dried fruit (add after cooking)
- Nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, pistachios, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds)
- Change the flavor with pumpkin spice instead of cinnamon!
