Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup natural almond butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Place the almond butter, maple syrup and coconut oil in a medium microwave safe bowl and heat for 25-40 seconds or until the coconut oil is melted and it's easy to stir.  Stir well to combine, then stir in the cinnamon and salt. 
  • Add the oats and stir until they're well coated with the almond butter mixture.
  • Pour the oats onto the prepared pan and spread in an even layer, about 1/4" thick, packing it down well.  Packing it down will help give us those big clusters!
  • Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden....do not stir!  Remove from heat and cool completely without stirring.
  • Once cooled, break the granola up into chunks and place in an air tight container at room temperature.
  • Serve with milk and fruit or eat by the handful.  Enjoy!

Notes

    • The almond butter may be substituted with your favorite nut butter or sun butter for a nut-free version.  I recommend using a natural nut butter to keep this granola low in saturated fat, sodium and sugar. 
    • If you're not a fan of coconut oil, replace with your favorite oil.
    • This healthy make ahead granola keeps for up to 2 weeks stored in an air tight container at room temperature. 
    • Add some fun add-ins like chocolate chip, dried or fresh fruit or roasted peanuts to change up this recipe! It would also be great with my homemade chai spice mix.
