This Maple Vanilla Pecan Granola makes for a fabulous breakfast with yogurt and fruit! Sweetened with real maple syrup and flavoured with vanilla extract and roasted pecans, it is sure to be a hit!
Crunchy, crumbly, chunky granola = the best kind of granola! This is another case of "why buy it at the store if you can make it better at home?". This homemade granola has all of those wonderful qualities sought after in granola. It's super crunchy thanks to the olive oil in the recipe giving awesome crunch factor! Perfectly crumbly: check! And it still has enough chunky clusters to call it granola!
Another major plus to this granola recipe is how incredibly simple and quick it is to make!! You can honestly stir it up and have it in the oven in 5 minutes and then let your oven do all the work!

Love and Cookies,
I have made this so many times!!!!! It’s something I can actually eat, and usually have the ingredients for. I normally double it and then store the extras for breakfast. It’s best with fresh fruit or yogurt!
That's awesome to hear! I'm so glad you love this recipe!!
This was easy to make and turned out wonderfully. I've tried a number of Maple Vanilla Granola recipes, and this is my favorite by far. The maple flavor comes through quite well. We enjoyed it on yogurt (and eating it straight from the container). Thank you--an excellent recipe.
Ah, I'm thrilled to hear that!
Thank you for the great review!
