This crunchy hemp granola packs a nutritional punch with a variety of nuts and seeds. It’s grain-free, vegan and sweetened only with maple syrup and dates.
I think this might be the best granola I’ve ever made!! Bold statement I know, but it’s THAT good. It has the crunchy texture and sweetness that I love but it’s completely grain-free and contains no refined sugar. Loaded with nutrient-dense nuts and seeds and lightly sweetened with maple syrup, this granola has a nutty flavor with hints of cinnamon and vanilla as well as a lovely coconut aroma.
The whole time the granola was baking our house smelled like a huge coconut macaroon… and it was amazing. If I could buy a candle that smells like this granola baking I totally would.
Is Granola Healthy?
Ready for a truth bomb? There are a lot of store bought granolas that aren’t very healthy. They’re typically packed with a lot of sugar and highly processed oils. The good news is: granola is super easy to make and homemade versions ARE healthy! Especially this one.

Maple syrup and dates – add just the right amount of sugar.
