Light and Easy Granola

Good Morning Granola

Light and Easy Granola

  • Servings: 10+
  • Print

Hands on Time: 15 minutes

Special Equipment: Cookie sheet, parchment paper


  • 3 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 2 tbsp & 1 tsp Wheat Germ
  • 1/2 Cup Slivered Almonds
  • 1/3 Cup Pepitas
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 5 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil

Whole Foods Ingredients for Granola


  • Preheat oven to 320 Degrees F.
  • Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the maple syrup and olive oil.  I use a small rubber spatula to ensure I’m getting every last drop from the Tablespoon!
  • Stir to throughly incorporate all of the ingredients.  A wooden spoon will work equally as well as the paddle attachment of a stand mixer.
  • Spread the mixed ingredients evenly over the cookie sheet, going right up to the edges.
  • Bake at 320 degrees F for 40 minutes.  To allow clumps to form, do not stir mid-bake.
  • Remove after 40 minutes and slide the parchment paper from the cookie sheet onto the counter, or set sheet on a cooling rack.
    • Allow to cool completely before tasting – it really is better cooled!

Store in an airtight container in the pantry.
