Janette's Vegan Granola

The nutrition facts for this simple and delicious vegan granola can be found at Calorie Count!

Vegan Granola


3 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup chopped (or slivered) almonds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon light olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, making sure they are well-blended.

Spread mixture evenly on the parchment paper. Bake until golden brown, which will take about 25 to 30 minutes.

Take the granola out of the oven every 5 to 6 minutes and stir.

Allow the granola to cool completely and store in an airtight container. (I simply lifted the edges of the parchment paper and put the entire thing in a container.)


If you are not vegan, you may consider substituting honey for molasses.

Consider adding your favorite dried fruit to the mix when it is cool.

    You may use less sweetener, and it is still wonderful.
