Please can you give some suggestions for which kind of vegetable oil you use?
Kind regards and thank you for your wonderful inspiration!
I loved seeing the recipe and mid-way through the baking I went to move it and it was looking great! Then i came back at the 30 mins and it's definitely overtoasted. I'm still eating it and its good (and didn't want to throw out), but I definitely think 350 degrees is too high maybe? Next time I'll do 250 F at 30min. Thank you!
I really like all your recipes, but this one isn't so good. I put it in the oven for only 20 minutes (and stirred every 10 minutes), but it is burnt, so more than 1/3 of the whole granola I'll have to throw away. As for the rest - I'm not sure yet if it's good enough to eat (not too burnt).
I recommend stirring every 5 minutes. Maybe in this case everything would be all right...
I'm thinking maybe there's a mistake in the recipe and it should be 120 degrees, not 180.
Anyway, I'll try it next time with some improvements. It feels like this granola should be tasty :)
A very simple and tasty recipe. Swapped figs for cranberries and I found that baking for 30 minutes is more than long enough (it almost overtoasted). Enjoyed this for breakfast with some home-made nut butter and pomegranate seeds.
I've made this at least 4 times now, every time it finishes :D its the only granola recipe I use now! I skip the figs as I don't like the taste, and increase the seeds or nuts. I've found almonds or macadamias a good substitute for the hazelnuts
I just made this granola this morning and love it! The recipe is super straight forward and it came out delicious. I didn’t have any figs on hand so I replaced it with dried Deglet Noor dates. I served the granola with strawberries and yogurt. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much
This granola is my favorite! I do it with dried cranberries instead of figs, just because I don't like figs. It is yummy to eat it on its own as well 😄
My favorite of all the Granola recipes :) although i love them all and switch between the granola recipes on this side every week. My boyfriend likes the Double Chocolate Granola the most.
Hi! I was wondering if it was possible to use the base of the 'healthiest ever' granola recipe (i love the combination of dates and nut butter) as a base for the other granolas like this one? if so, is there any specific nut butter you'd recommend? how do you suggest i go at it?
thank you :))
Simply delicious 😋
I rated this recipe a 5 which says it all : )
To My Dear Lovely Internet Role Model Sadia,
This by far is my most FAVORITE recipe. I've made it countless times! But today I wanted to let you know that I did something different. My figs looked like they went bad, so I decided to omit them in the recipe all together. Instead I added freshly cubed apples along with soymilk, and it was still fabulous. The mini chocolate chips, maple syrup, coconut sugar (wanted to experiment w/ a different type of sugar), and apples provide enough sugar that I didn't even miss the figs. My tongue & stomach will appreciate the yumminess and nutrition, respectively.
From the bottom of my heart, I am so grateful for your Youtube videos and website. If it were not for the internet and you, I would have not developed a healthier eating lifestyle. I mean you used to live in Canada and now the Netherlands - I would have never been able to meet with you without the internet! You have made a tremendously huge impact in my eating patterns - you have no idea. Sadia, you're my biggest nutritionist role model!
Lots of Love,
This is delicious! Wasn't too sure how I felt about adding figs but the combination of flavours works brilliantly. It feels like a fancy treat for breakfast
Can we use coconut oil instead of a vegetable oil? or will it not cook as well?
Made this today!! It's super easy and absolutely delicious (like most of your recipes). I'm not actually vegan (vegetarian though), and have been gravitating to trying more and more vegan options since I've discovered your wonderful channel and blog. Excellent explanations and nutrition reasoning behind all of your recipes not to mention very accurate and easily followed directions - Thank you soooo much for all the work you do.
This recipe is perfect for someone like me who struggles to eat breakfast first thing in the morning and keeping up a nutritious & healthy morning routine. Already packed for breakfast tomorrow morning!
I love this granola ♥
I made these last night and they are INSANELY good!!! I've been trying out a lot of your recipes and i have yet to be disappointed. My current favs are the granolas and the cinnamon vanilla nut butter:)
Thank you so much for providing all this valuable information for everyone to enjoy. Lots of love!
Hello there. I have already made it quite few times. Since hazelnuts tend to be a bit on the pricy side I used walnuts and turned out really delicious. I could say this become one of my favourite breakfast choices together with plant based milk and frozen blueberries ^^.
Absolutely delicious!! Crunchy, not too sweet, and combination of chocolate and figs (a “mature” taste). I’m so happy that I manage to prepare a crispy granola only using maple syrup. In the end, what can possibly go wrong with a little bit of chocolate, figs, and nuts? I think that I’ll try to substitute hazelnuts for almonds next time: they both have a characteristic flavour working very well with figs🤔👩🏼🔬
AMAZING recipe!! Seriously the best granola I have ever tried in my life, so balanced but rich at the same time!
Delicious granola :). I make this granola if I don't have the "Hazelnut Granola Breakfast Bars". Very tasty. I sometimes half the amount of sugars if I want to feel more healthy and it still tastes amazing. Recommended
🙏One of the best quick and easy to make yogurt cereals! Awesome with fresh fruit! 🍌🍑🍓🥭
I'm totally in love with this recipe. The taste of the roasted hazelnuts works so well with the figs and chocolate. Would absolutely recommend giving it a try!
Thanks for sharing!
would like to know can i use molasses in the recipe instead of agave or maple syrup?
Also can I use any other replacement for vegetable oil -may be like sunflower oil?
