Description

Maple Matcha Granola is the best way to give your morning breakfast a maple, green tea crunch! Hearty oats, nuts, hemp seeds and chia drizzled with matcha green tea and pure maple syrup for a sweet and crunchy topping.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder
  • Optional (for chunkier, sweeter granola): 
    • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
    • 1/4 cup additional maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.  In a 9×13 pan, combine the oats, almonds, chia seeds, pecans and salt.  Stir well to evenly distribute the ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, add the match powder.  Slowly pour the maple syrup in while whisking continuously to remove any lumps.  Set aside.
  3. Drizzle the oil over the dry ingredients.  Use your hands or a spatula to stir the ingredients well, making sure everything is coated.  Repeat with the maple-matcha mixture.
  4. For crumbly granola: bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.  For chunkier, sweeter granola: after 15 minutes of baking, stir in 1/4 cup additional maple syrup and 1/4 cup coconut flakes.  Bake for 15 more minutes and let cool 5 minutes before stirring.

Notes

  • If you’d like to add the coconut flakes without adding more maple syrup, stir them in during the last 10 minutes of baking.
