Nutty Homemade Granola | Easy Breakfast Staple

BY : PUBLISHED : July 14th, 2019 UPDATED: February 4th, 2022

I think we can all agree that granola is fantastic; the only problem is that most of the store bought ones are full of nasties and loaded with added sugar. This is why making your own homemade granola at home is such a good idea! Plus you get to save tons of money and make big batches to last for the month. A plant-based on a budget win!

Personalized Granola!

As if we didn't have enough reasons already to run to the kitchen and make our homemade granola, I have another one! You can choose whatever makes your heart sing! If you're not a big fan of nuts you can skip the nuts or if you're trying to reduce your oil consumption then you can also leave it out.

This recipe is about adding nutritious ingredients but also your favorite ones! Flaxseeds, sesame seeds, cinnamon, cranberries. You name it! The possibilities are so endless you could make two or three different versions in batches and have them waiting in your pantry whenever breakfast time comes.

Homemade Granola: The Best Topping & more!

I'm sure we all have a favorite way to eat granola. On top of some soy yogurt, sprinkled on top of a nutritious smoothie bowl or even on its own with a splash of your favorite plant milk. What's your favorite way of eating it? Maybe it's straight out of the jar as a quick snack. Sounds amazing, doesn't it?

Whatever your favorite way of eating it is or whatever delicious ingredients you decide to add, make sure you are close to the oven and don't forget to check every now and then when baking it. This step is crucial! Otherwise, you'll end up with a burned mix of wasted ingredients.

Wouldn't a bath of this homemade granola be an excellent gift for someone special? As a thank you maybe? Go ahead and give it a go!
