Almond Cinnamon Granola

Almond Cinnamon Granola

Granola is a fantastic breakfast anytime of the week, but when I look through the long list of ingredients on store bought packets I realise it can be so much much healthier and it really is just as easy to make it at home.

Elevate your breakfast routine with this almond cinnamon granola, a delicious blend of wholesome ingredients. Toasted almonds add a delightful crunch, while fragrant cinnamon infuses each bite with warmth and flavor. Whether paired with yogurt in a Vanilla Greek Yoghurt Bowls or with milk, this irresistible granola is a delightful way to start your day providing a boost of energy and a touch of indulgence.

Granola ingredients

  • 2 cups whole rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, (or almonds, or a mix of both)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes, optional
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons creamy almond butter
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the oats, walnuts, coconut flakes, if using, cinnamon, and salt. Drizzle in the coconut oil and maple syrup and add the almond butter. Stir until combined. Scoop the granola onto the baking sheet and press the mixture into a 1-inch-thick oval. The clumps are good. 
  • Bake for 15 minutes, rotate the pan halfway, and use a fork to gently break the granola apart just a bit. Bake for 15 minutes more, or until golden brown. Sprinkle with dried cranberries, if desired (do this at the end to stop them burning). Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
