Triple Nutz Nola: easy, extra crunchy vegan granola

triple nutz nola

Feeling all kinds of inspired by Rainah (@yoginiranah), I made my own granola this weekend. If you haven’t checked this girl out, her feed inspires me to eat cleaner, live more fully, and get more adventurous in my kitchen. Not to mention she is the sweetest soul. Mid-scroll stalk of her feed, I came across a granola recipe that looked SO delicious but also easy enough to whip up before the season premiere of Game of Thrones. I made some alterations based off of current cravings and pantry supplies, but followed her lead.

What goes into the nola:

  • Rolled oats
  • Cashews
  • Slivered Almonds
  • PB (look for versions with just peanuts and salt)
  • Melted coconut oil (unrefined, organic, raw is my preference)
  • Dried cranberries
  • Raw cacao nibs
  • SALT

I mix the melted coconut oil and PB together, poured it over the rolled oats, cashews, and almonds, gave it a good stir and spread over a lined baking sheet. Place the sheet into a 350 degree oven for 22 min. Halfway through give the mixture a stir to break it up a bit. Once the mixture is baked, mix in dried cranberries and raw cacao nibs. No need for measuring cups here, whatever proportions you like of oats to nuts to berries works! I ground some fresh sea salt over mine because I love a good salty / sweet combo. That’s it! Let it cool, jar it up, and you’re good to go. There are SO many combos that could be made here. More to come 🙂

  1. Anything with peanut butter ! I can’t wait to make this when I’m home 🙂 Do you keep it in the fridge or no?

    1. Yes!PB love; I’m obsessed with it! I kept mine in mason jars in the pantry (cool, dark space) so not overheating in the sun of my kitchen but I’d think the fridge might make it extra crunchy 🙂 Lmk if you try!
