Maple Pecan Granola Recipe
Maple syrup and flavoring give an extra burst of maple in this granola with oats, pecans, and walnuts.
This easy-to-make granola is perfect for colder months and will make your house smell amazing with toasty notes of pecans, sweet maple, and spicy cinnamon. Top it off with chopped dates for added sweetness.
Homemade maple pecan granola with plenty of spiced dried fruit is a crunchy topping for yogurt or great by itself!
I have bought the Trader Joe's Maple Pecan Granola for years and now they don't have it anymore. So I searched for a recipe I could grow to love as much. FOUND IT! I doubled the pecans, left out the walnuts and flax seed, used coconut oil and vanilla as some had suggested. Can't wait for breakfast in the morning.
Pretty easy to make and tastes good. I reduced the maple syrup and the cinnamon and skipped the maple flavoring(did not have it). The granola recipe I usually makes has a lots of nuts and seeds and I missed that in this recipe. I might use less oats next time and more nuts and seeds.
It was good. My only suggestion would be to add the salt in with the dry ingredients. And also I didn't add the maple extract because I didn't think it would be necessary and it wasn't.
This recipe is truly delicious! After baking the mixture, I added Raisins, dried, Pomegranate, Coconut flakes, and Dates. Yes, I'll make it agan.
This came out super! I didn't want a ton on hand, so I made half the recipe to see how it came out. I replaced the canola oil with coconut oil, and the flavor works well here and added extra salt. I stirred after 20 min and again in 15 min, taking it out a few min earlier. You really need to watch it because it could be overdone easily. I mixed in some shredded coconut after it came out of the oven (not flaked; a shredded-type that was thinner and not too sweet). The kitchen smelled amazing when this was baking. You can really make it your own by adding raisins, etc. This really makes the store-bought stuff look pretty bad. Thanks for a great recipe!
Homemade maple granola with pecans and coconut oil is a hearty and crunchy cereal you can eat alone and sprinkle over yogurt or ice cream.
