Super Nutty Granola is the king of breakfast and snack! Super crunchy – super nutty – super delicious! Made with peanut oil to have the ultimate nutty experience.
Nutty – Nuttier – Super Nutty Granola
With rising temperatures, my cravings for cool dairy products are increasing. We had 92°F yesterday. Summer, I love you! I really enjoy this hot weather a lot though I’m sweating non-stop. But this is not mainly because of the high temperatures itself but rather because of the job I have. In my job as a Regional Manager of a large retail company, I have to wear suits. Every day. And I hate wearing suits.
As soon as I came home these days, I immediately slipped into my bikini, grabbed a big bowl of ice cold Greek yogurt with lots of berries and Nutty Granola on top and went to the garden. This is how I enjoyed my free time the last couple of days, and I definitely can get used to it. I’m sure I’m a Californian who was accidentally dropped in a land with long cold weather periods throughout the year.
Super Nutty Granola – 100% power food
This Super Nutty Granola is real power food. It is loaded with peanuts, pecan nuts, and almonds. Nuts have lots of vitamins, micronutrients, protein, and healthy fats.
Oats contain a good amount of dietary fibers and long-chain carbohydrates.
The vanilla bean has vanillin inside, which is known for reducing cholesterol levels in the body. It is also high in antioxidants, which help prevent the breakdown of cells in the body.
See? 100% power food. Like I said before.

- 3/4 cup peanuts, chopped (100g)
- 1/2 cup pecans, chopped (50g)
- 1/4 cup almonds, chopped (35g)
- 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (300g)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup maple syrup (80ml)
- 1/4 cup peanut oil (60ml)
- 1 vanilla bean (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Roughly chop nuts and toss with oats and salt in a large bowl and set aside. In another bowl whisk maple syrup, oil, and vanilla* until combined. Pour over oats and stir until all the oats are evenly moistened.
Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 40 minutes. Stir after 20 minutes. Let the granola cool completely on the baking sheet. Once cooled, transfer it to an airtight container and store at room temperature up to 3 weeks.
- When chopping the nuts, don't make them too fine or it won't be easy to eat.
- Store this easy granola recipe in an airtight container for best results.
- Always use fresh ingredients, so it tastes the best.
- If giving the homemade nutty granola as a gift don't make it more than a week in advance, so the person who receives it has time to eat it before it loses flavor.
I'm Allergic To Peanuts, Can I Still Make This Super Nutty Granola Recipe?
Yes, you can absolutely still make this homemade nutty granola even if you are allergic to peanuts. Simply omit the peanuts and substitute them for any of your favorite nuts.
Can I Use Honey Instead Of Maple Syrup?
Yes, if you don't have maple syrup or you don't like maple syrup, feel free to substitute it for honey. Honey is the same type of texture and will also be sweet enough for this healthy granola recipe. Use the same amount of honey as you would use maple syrup, and you will be good to go.
*First, cut off the straight end of the vanilla bean. Then place the tip of your sharp knife below the curled end and cut the vanilla bean through the middle of the bean lengthwise. Although you don't need to cut it all the way through, it's ok when you do so. Then open the vanilla bean and scrape out the flavorful seeds with the back of your knife. Just use the seeds.
