Quick & Easy Vegan Trail Mix Granola Recipe

VEGAN_Trail_Mix_FTA

We are back in the kitchen, whipping up a few versatile snacks and meals that are healthy and satisfying. The first recipe is dedicated to our love of granola. Now over the years we have simply opted for buying our granola at the store and calling it a day without fully realizing how much sugar we were putting in our bodies by going this route. This is why we challenged ourselves to make homemade granola that was both healthy and delicious. And so we bring you our Vegan Trail Mix granola.  Keep reading to learn how you can make this quick and easy recipe at home.

  • 3/4 cup of Chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup of Raw Sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup of dry Cranberries or raisins
  • 1/2 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • A pinch of sea salt (optional)

Vegan Trail Mix granola | step 1 Step 1: 
In a large mixing bowl, add the oats, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, salt, nuts, and dried cranberries together.

Step 2:

To make the syrup, heat a small saucepan over medium low heat and add the coconut oil, agave (or maple syrup) and vanilla extract. Once everything has liquified and is well blended, simply remove the pan off the stove and pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients. Take a wooden spoon and mix everything until well combined.

You may need more than one baking sheet to avoid overcrowding the granola. Once you have laid the granola mixture evenly on the baking sheet(s), pop it in the oven and bake for 23-28 minutes or until golden brown. Just make sure to watch it carefully as the granola can brown too quickly.

Tip: If you want a more crumbly granola, make sure to stir the granola at the halfway point to break up any clusters.

Once the granola is visibly brown, remove it from the oven and do one final toss. Leave the granola to cool completely on the baking sheet. Store in an airtight container and enjoy on its own or with soy or almond milk.   The granola should stay fresh for 2 to 3 weeks.

I would have to change up the walnuts for pecans and I like to add different dried fruit to our granola.

We have actually changed up the different nuts and fruits and it comes out wonderful. Let us know what combination you make the granola with!

This recipe is really adaptable which we love. You can add natural sweetners like dried fruit or vegan honey to make this sweeter or even make savory granola.

Granolas are great snacks and quick munch to soothe hunger, Agree with you buying granolas loaded with sugar may be unhealthy but great you tried them at home. Thanks for sharing

Mm I love that browned colour when it is fresh out of the oven 🙂 I’d definitely enjoy this with some almond milk or sprinkle some ontop of my porridge.

I’m surprised it only lasts 2-3 weeks, I would have thought longer than that, I’ve been wanting to try to make my own granola considering I have it more or less every morning, I’ll take note to make enough just for a couple of weeks!

Kusum @sveetesKapes

I make my own granola too and this is pretty much how I make mine too, minus the cinnamon. This looks so delicious, yummy!

This looks delicious yet healthy! I don`t think I would put raisins though. I don`t like them much.
