Homemade Maple Cinnamon Granola

  • Author: Fork Knife Swoon
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 55 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 mins
  • Yield: About 7 cups 1x


  • 5 cups rolled (old-fashioned) oats
  • 11/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp (packed) light brown sugar
  • 11/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 5 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • optional: 2 cups dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, cherries, apricots etc.)


  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, coconut flakes, and chopped nuts, and stir until well-mixed.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients except for the dried fruit (if using), until well-combined. Drizzle over the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until the entire mixture is evenly coated. Pour the granola onto the sheet pan, and spread into an even layer. Use the back of a spatula to press the granola down firmly into the pan.
  4. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until the top is golden brown and slightly toasted. Remove the pan from the oven and let cool on a baking sheet for about an hour. When the granola has cooled, break it into chunks. Stir together with the dried fruit, if using. Store in an airtight container for up to a week. Serve with yogurt and berries or munch on as a snack!
