This granola makes a perfect breakfast with a little non-dairy milk and some fresh fruit on top...and it also makes a tasty satisfying snack that my whole family loves! It's portable, so almost every time we travel I make a double batch to take along with us and it keeps well in an airtight container for weeks!
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Line a 9×13 baking pan or a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine maple syrup, brown rice syrup, coconut palm sugar, and almond butter.
  4. Heat over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  6. In a large bowl, combine all remaining ingredients (except for cranberries) and mix well.
  7. Pour warm syrup mixture over dry ingredients and mix well with a rubber spatula and keep stirring until everything is thoroughly combined.
  8. Spread the mixture in the lined pan and bake for 15 minutes – pull the pan out and stir.
  9. Bake for another 15 min – again, pull the pan out and stir to ensure even baking.
  10. Bake for another 10 minutes – or until the granola has a fragrant toasty aroma.
  11. I add the cranberries the last few minutes of toasting…but, you can also add them once the granola has cooled.
  12. Allow granola to cool completely before serving or transferring to an air tight container.
  13. Granola will stiffen up as it cools.
  14. Makes about 5 cups.
