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,

Oh dearest, Bindiya, thank YOU for the very kind words and support. It means so much 💚 We will be sure to pass on to message to Sadia. Sending an abundance of love to Mississippi!

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

PUL Team - Nov. 29, 2021, 12:09 a.m.

Woohoo so happy the granola was enjoyed, Lucia, thank you 😊

Can we use coconut oil instead of a vegetable oil? or will it not cook as well?

PUL Team - Oct. 31, 2021, 5:59 p.m.

Hi there, Anj! You can use melted coconut oil in place of vegetable oil. Refined coconut oil is coconut oil that doesn't smell or taste like coconuts so that may be desired. If you prefer a mild coconut-y taste, you could opt for unrefined coconut oil 😊


Celine - Oct. 24, 2021, 10:35 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - Oct. 26, 2021, 4:49 a.m.

The thanks is to YOU, Celine, you're much too kind! We're so happy the granola and PUL content is being enjoyed ☺️


Dominika - Oct. 23, 2021, 12:36 p.m.

I love this granola ♥


Angela - Oct. 11, 2021, 3:51 a.m.

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!

PUL Team - Oct. 11, 2021, 11:01 p.m.

Aw we're smiling from ear to ear, Angela! Thank you for the glowing review and support. It means so much ✨

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 ^^.

PUL Team - Sept. 27, 2021, 11:30 p.m.

We're so honoured to hear, Bridget, thank you! Love that the recipe is adjusted as desired too 😃


Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - Aug. 12, 2021, 8:07 a.m.

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🤔👩🏼‍🔬

PUL Team - Aug. 12, 2021, 4:16 p.m.

Mmm love the idea to use almonds! So glad you enjoyed the granola, Louise :D


Vidisha Rai - July 26, 2021, 10:46 p.m.

AMAZING recipe!! Seriously the best granola I have ever tried in my life, so balanced but rich at the same time!

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 4:11 a.m.

A massive compliment, Vidisha, thanks so much for sharing! 🥰


Sonia - July 23, 2021, 2:03 p.m.

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

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 7:44 p.m.

So glad you're enjoying this one and the breakfast bars, Sonia!


Javi Bravo - July 13, 2021, 1:10 a.m.

🙏One of the best quick and easy to make yogurt cereals! Awesome with fresh fruit! 🍌🍑🍓🥭


Anna - July 9, 2021, 7:43 p.m.

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!

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 3:03 a.m.

This means so much more than we can say, Anna! Thank you for the review and kind words 🤩


sneha - June 9, 2021, 2:08 p.m.

hi
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?

PUL Team - June 11, 2021, 1:06 a.m.

Hello Sneha, if you enjoy the taste of molasses you could substitute it for the syrup. You'll likely find the taste too strong with a 1:1 substitute though, so we'd recommend diluting it with water or adding less based on your preferences. The resulting granola will be less sweet as you may imagine! Using sunflower seed oil would be fine as well, just be sure to keep the oven heat below 450°F to ensure the oil doesn't burn 🤗
