Want a healthy granola recipe that’s actually good for you? Here’s the only recipe you need! The maple pecan flavor is nutrient rich and 100% delicious.
Hey granola fans! Ready for your new go-to granola recipe? This maple pecan healthy granola has been a favorite at our house for years. Now: most granola is not healthy. Store-bought and homemade granola recipes can be full of sugar and oil, and very high in calories. How does granola get away with being “healthy person food”? We’re not sure. So Alex and I set out to make a recipe that was actually healthy. It turned out so delicious: perfectly crunchy, warmly spiced, and just the right amount of sweetness. We’ve been making it on repeat to this day.
This recipe came about because our son Larson loves granola with his yogurt every morning. Alex and I realized that so many brands and recipes out there are too full of sugar and oil. Many recipes are also high calorie. Some of them are 500 calories per 1/2 cup serving! Our goal for making a healthy granola recipe was to stay around 200 calories per serving.
- 1/4 cup neutral oil
- 2/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 cups old fashioned organic rolled oats
- 3 cups puffed rice (substitute rolled oats if you can’t find puffed grains!)
- 1 cup pecan halves
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large bowl, mix the oil, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice, and salt.
- Add the rolled oats, puffed rice, and pecans. Stir with wooden spoon to evenly coat.
- Spread onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake around 25 to 30 minutes until golden and toasted, stirring once.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool completely: the granola becomes crispy as it cools. Store in airtight container.
