Granola is great on-the-go, starting your day, or just anytime!

Make a giant batch of this delicious, no fuss, Easy Almond Maple Granola with two bowls, two cookie sheets, five minutes, and your oven! No more fussy granola!


Units Scale
  • 2 cups wheat flour (whole wheat, white or a combination) or gluten-free alternative*
  • 6 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sunflower or safflower oil
  • 1 cup maple syrup (any grade)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F
  2. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets
  3. Combine first four ingredients well
  4. In a second bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients until well blended and add to the dry ingredients
  5. Mix thoroughly
  6. Spread evenly on the two cookie sheets and place on the center rack of your oven.
  7. Bake for 1 hour
  8. Cool thoroughly. Granola will become crunchy as it cools.
  9. Store in sealed container.


  • Dried fruit should be added when the granola is cool.
  • *My preferred gluten-free flour mix is 1 cup fine brown rice flour, 1/2 cup white rice flour, and 1/2 cup oat flour.
  • Oat flour can be purchased or made by putting oats in a dry blender or food processor.
  • A delicious, but a little more calorie-dense, option is to replace 1 cup of flour with almond flour/meal.
