Start your morning with a bowl of delicious maple granola! This is an easy vegan recipe that comes together quickly. Serve this simple granola with dairy free yogurt, a smoothie, or pack it up for a post workout snack.
Breakfast is often a problem for those with food allergies. Which makes sense if you think about it – eggs, wheat, milk, and nuts are all common breakfast items, and all common allergens as well.
I know it’s easy to get stuck eating the exact same thing for breakfast. This is especially true if you have limited choices!
We love homemade granola at my house, and I like to mix things up by making variations on a basic recipe. Double chocolate granola, coconut granola, and this easy maple granola with raisins are all favorites at my house.
- certified gluten free oats
- vegan buttery spread
- maple syrup
- vanilla extract
Step by Step Instructions
- Melt the vegan buttery spread in a large bowl and add the maple syrup, oats, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt.
2. Stir the ingredients well, making sure the dry ingredients are well coated with the buttery spread and syrup.
3. Spread the granola on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment.
4. Bake at 250 degrees F for about 45 minutes. Stir the granola every 15 minutes. Allow the granola to cool on the baking sheet. Add the raisins to the granola after it cools.
- You can use a different sweetener if you wish – honey or agave syrup should work well.
- Use craisins or dried cherries instead of raisins, or leave the raisins out and enjoy this granola plain.
- If you can have nuts, try adding pecans or almonds.
- If you like chocolate, try adding some white chocolate chips and dark chocolate chips to this recipe.
Store this maple granola in an airtight container or ziploc bag. It should stay fresh for about a week.

We love this for breakfast!
Oh, I love a good granola recipe!
Love that bowl! Is it Anthro? This granola is simple but looks great! Can’t wait to try it (I’m a HUGE granola fan!!) Pinned!
Thanks for pinning, Chelsea! Yes, that is an Anthro bowl and it was recently on clearance. It’s called the Marshmallow Bowl.
Oh this looks so good. I just pinned it. Thank you! Now, I hope I actually make it! :)
It sounds good RIGHT NOW! haha…
Thanks for pinning, Heidi. It’s easy to make, but I know you are busy with two little ones!
This looks divine, I also love making homemade granola!

Using the vegan butter is such a great idea for a change over coconut oil (which I usually use). I love recipes that are a great base for customization! This is exactly the kind of thing I like to make when I just feel like putzing around in the kitchen :)
Thanks, Allison! I like the vegan butter with the pecans, it’s a good combo! :)

I’ve never made my own granola but I think it’s time to start. Isn’t it crazy the simple something (food related) the more expensive. It’s ludacris! ;) Thanks for sharing this granola recipe. Yummm!
It’s really so easy to make, you should definitely try it!
