  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder
  • Optional for chunkier, sweeter granola:
  • ¼ cup coconut flakes
  • ¼ cup additional maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.  In a 9x13 pan, combine the oats, almonds, chia seeds, pecans and salt.  Stir well to evenly distribute the ingredients.
  • In a small bowl, add the match powder.  Slowly pour the maple syrup in while whisking continuously to remove any lumps.  Set aside.
  • 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.
  • For crumbly granola: bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.  For chunkier, sweeter granola: after 15 minutes of baking, stir in ¼ cup additional maple syrup and ¼ cup coconut flakes.  Bake for 15 more minutes and let cool 5 minutes before stirring.


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