Not only is store bought granola packed with sugar but it’s expensive to boot. A good go-to granola recipe is a must have and comes in handy year round. This granola was a labor of love so trust us when we say you’ll want to give it a try. 


  • 4 cups rolled oats 
  • 2 cups puffed millet
  • 1 ½ cups slivered almonds
  • 1 cup of other mixed nuts (we like using pecans and walnuts)- chopped
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ½ cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ¾ cup coconut oil (in liquid form)
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs (optional)
  • ½ cup dried fruit (cut into small pieces)
  • 2 pinches of salt


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add in your oats, millet, nuts, chia seeds, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the wet ingredients: coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. 
  4. Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients.
  5. Evenly combine wet and dry ingredients together and spread the mixture onto your baking sheet.
  6. Put in oven for 20 minutes, mixing halfway through.
  7. After 20 minutes, pull out granola and add in the rest of the ingredients (coconut, pepitas, sunflower seeds, cacao nibs) and return the pan to the oven for 3-5 minutes.
  8. Pull the baking sheet out of the oven and sprinkle on dried fruit. 
  9. Let cool
  10. Store granola in airtight containers in the refrigerator (should last for at least 1 month).
