Walnut & Date Granola
Author: Julia
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup walnuts coarsely chopped
  • 3 fresh medjool dates pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla powder or a teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil or oil of your preference
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all dry ingredients (excluding the chopped dates) to a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add coconut oil and pure maple syrup to a small bowl and microwave (or heat on stove top) for 10 seconds or so or until melted. Pour the maple/coconut oil over the oat mixture and use a spoon to stir until everything is coated.

  3. Pour the granola mixture onto a baking sheet and form a rectangle so that ingredients aren’t spaced out. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes on the center rack of your oven or until granola is crispy and golden brown.
  4. Half-way through baking, mix granola around on the baking sheet with a spatula so that it bakes evenly. Remove from the oven and allow the granola to cool at least 10 minutes – this is where the clustering magic happens! Add the chopped dates before serving with yogurt, milk and/or fruit!
