Easy Homemade Granola Recipe

homemade vegan granola recipe

Super crunchy and tasty granola that is sooo much cheaper and nicer than shop bought. It is dairy free, and can be made vegan if you substitute the honey for agave. And it only takes minutes to make!

I am really not a breakfast person, but yoghurt and granola is one thing I actually enjoy eating in the morning. I am not a huge fan of peanut butter but this was just gorgeous, next time I am going to double this so it lasts me more than a couple of days, I keep grabbing handfuls out of the jar every time I walk past!

The possibilities with this recipe are endless, I plan on trying it with different nut butters, then adding dried fruit or even some chocolate chips (after baking). I don’t think I’ll ever buy granola in a shop again.



2 tablespoons peanut butter (I used smooth)
2 tablespoons maple syrup (or agave nectar or golden syrup)
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 cup Oats

easy homemade granola


1) Preheat oven to 160*C. Put the syrup and peanut butter in a mixing bowl and microwave until melted (around 20 seconds).

2) Mix in all the other ingredients until the oats are well coated.

3) Lightly spray a cooking sheet with oil, and spread the oats out onto it.

4) Bake for 5-7 minutes, until just going golden. Let cool until it turns crunchy.


Stores well in a kilner jar – gorgeous with yoghurt :)

    Oh my goodness…..have just made this and it is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. I made 4X the quantity, but used 6 tbsp of peanut butter and only 4 tbsp of honey. It was plenty sweet enough. I also added jumbo raisins, cranberries and sunflower seeds at the end, and it looked and tasted so delicious, I had a bowlful with milk then and there! Yum Yum :-) So glad to have found an easy, home-made, sugar-free granola that toasts up nicely without all that oil other recipes seem to call for. Thanks, Laurenne!

    I hope I am not making a silly mistake but I have noticed that the ingredients doesn’t mention Honey but your instructions do. Do you use honey instead of maple syrup? Hopefully I haven’t made a silly mistake here!

    • My mistake sorry, I used to make it with honey instead of maple syrup before we went vegan and looks like I hadn’t changed it in the instructions part. I’ve edited the instructions now – thanks for that and hope you like it! L x
