Homemade Vanilla Cinnamon Granola

I love me some granola! I add it to my yogurt, sprinkle it on my salads, mix it with some fresh fruit, or enjoy it as a bowl of cereal with some unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

The down side about granola is that it’s often loaded with added sugars. Many people think it’s automatically healthy because it’s filled with good ingredients like oats, nuts, and seeds. But if you look at the nutrition label, you’ll likely notice a whole lot of sugar.

The good news is that granola is super easy to make yourself, and what I love about it is you are in complete control of the ingredients. There are so many different things you can add to your granola, so it’s really fun to do it yourself.

This Vanilla Cinnamon Granola is so delicious and it’s tastes just like cinnamon swirl! And your house smells heavenly while it’s baking.

Next time, instead of reaching for store-bought granola, give this one a try. I guarantee you’ll be addicted to homemade granola!

Vanilla Cinnamon Granola
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Mix dry ingredients (rolled oats and nuts) in a mixing bowl. Leave the raisins off to the side until the end.
  3. In another mixing bowl, mix together all wet ingredients (rest of the ingredients). Add the wet ingredient to the dry and mix together until everything is coated.
  4. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Stir mixture every 15 minutes.
  5. If you are using raisins, fold them in once the mixture comes out of the oven and is still warm. Then, let the mixture cool completely before digging in or transferring to a jar.

    Thanks looks yummy, could I just leave the sugar out or does that change the whole recipe? I ask because my husband can’t have sugar

    I have always avoided granola having tasted it once and I thought i was gonna die of the sugar rush. It was just too sweet for me! And never my option for healthy eating, and often wondered about why it was “diet food”. Thank you so much for your recipe, now I could just whip up my own.
