This granola is absolutely amazing! I've used dried apricots instead of dried mangoes, simply because that's what I've had on hand. This is my third or fourth week in a row making this - it's so yummy!
Best granola ever!
I use a homemade cashew strawberry nut butter instead of the almond butter.
I also add cacao nibs
Absolutely loved this!
I'm usually a chocolate granola kind of girl but felt like I could use some change and was particularly intrigued by the addition of dehydrated mangoes in this one. I love the texture and the taste! I definitely will make it again :)
My boyfriend is usually not a fan of my homemade granolas because he finds them too sweet but really loved this one. Its sweet without being overempowering and I find that you can taste the roasted flavor profile much better than in a chocolate granola :)
This granola was absolutely delicious! It was a little difficult cutting up the dried mango, but worth it in the end. My new favourite granola recipe on your site.
Hey PUL team ! Can I use honey instead of maple syrup here ?
Really good and easy to prepare!
I wanted to know if you soak your pumpkin seeds before roasting them.
Hi, I can not find puffed quinoa. is there a way to make this at home using regular quinoa?
Definitely a staple in our household, so delicious. Thank you! 😊
I’m just wondering what that beautiful looking tea was? Thanks x
I really love this recipe it has been a staple in our household for the last year. We enjoy it on its on or in yoghurt or smoothie bowls. I would just add that I mix it all in one bowl to save on extra dishes, dried ingredients first and wet second. And I also had the hemp seeds in before baking. Thanks for this great recipe. Are there any nutritional benefits from not toasting the hemp seeds?
My go-to granola for many years now!
This is my favourite recipe of yours so far! The granola tasted amazing, it’s perfectly sweetened I’m obsessed! You absolutely have to try it:) 100% recommend, it goes with everything
Lots of love from france
I love this recipe. For the past 2 years I have been using your granola recipes, and it just tastes so much better than what you get at the shops. I definitely recommend all of your granola recipes and encourage people to try making their own at home. It is so easy and worth it 👌
Watched the Pick Up Limes video for this mango granola, and let me tell you, it really inspired me to go make some!! I totally eyeballed all the ingredients, using whatever I had on hand, and it turned out SO GOOD! I’ve never enjoyed granola as much as I did this time! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND! Thank you Pick Up Limes :))
I don’t ever eat granola, not ever. But something about your video made me want to try this and I LOVE it with my yogurt and some apples in the morning. I puffed some millet because I didn’t have any quinoa and I omitted the sugar because I don’t like things too sweet. It’s perfect. I can’t get enough of it. Thank you!
Have been making this granola for months now. We absolutely love it. Thank you so much for this recipe and congratulations on your engagement. <3
Yum!! A favourite for me and my children. Thank you. X
Dear PUL Team & Sadia,
Thanks so much for all of your hard work and information dense website. You guys are incredibly kind and helpful in pointing me to a healthier lifestyle!!
For the Crunch Almond & Mango Granola recipe, can I use puffed millet instead of puffed quinoa? If so, do I add the puffed millet to the granola after it bakes in the oven or before I bake it in the oven? I don't want the puffed millet to burn.
Lots of Love & Appreciation,

Let me just say I am not a granola person. Nor am I a coconut or mango person, so I really don't know why I made this except that I watched the video and found dried mangos on sale at the grocery store. I figured my husband likes granola so what the heck. The aromas what filled my kitchen while baking were heavenly so when it was done I HAD to try some. This may very well be the best thing I've made in a long time. It is scrumptious! Thank you so much for all of your wonderful recipes.
It got a bit darker than on the picture but I guess it is my oven’s fault. Otherwise lovely flavours and great texture
So good!!! I’ve made it 5 times already!!
Very delicious, I really like the combination of nuts, spices, and dries fruit in this one. I've already made it twice, and will go back to it for sure :3
Absolute favourite at my house! I make it on a regular basis, switching up nut butters and dried fruit.
This is by far, my most favourite granola recipe. I make it every month and unsurprisingly it lasts not more than 2-3 days (no matter the batch size!!). Might I add — I love you as much as your genius work! Keep being your fabulous self. XOXO
This is soooo good! Sadia, you are a vegan queen! Thank you!
I absolutely love this granola recipe!
It's so good it doesn't last a week here at home.
I have even done it and gave it to friends ❤️
After learning this recipe I never bought granola in the supermarket again.
Made this for the first time, and it was such a hit! Thanks for this lovely recipe, I am waiting to finish this and try the other granola recipes soon. I have one question regarding the toppings, I often hear people suggesting not to combine acidic fruits like berries with sugar fruits like banana. Could you please throw some light on that? Thank you.
The best granola recipe which I always come back, after experimenting with others.
My favourite go to granola! I've made this over 4 times now. Haven't bought regular granola since. I just do oats instead of puffed rice and leave out the mango because I normally don't have any , but it's so good! Like eat it as is good 😅
We make this granola every week. It’s the BEST!. We shared the recipe with family and friends and they absolutely love it. Also we made this for my Gma who never ate breakfast… now eats this every morning with yogurt!
Made this countless times. Love this for breakfast; so easy to make and super healthy too. Highly recommend.
In love with this granola! My nephew enjoys it straight out of the jar. Making more tomorrow (husband’s request) ❤️
One of my favorites next to the fig granola <3. I sometimes half the sugar and still tastes great!
This granola is SO GOOD. I love all the different textures. The color of the pumpkin seeds and mango is so bright and inviting for a nutritious breakfast or snack. The almond butter mixture is a delicious caramel flavor that I love!
My favorite granola recipe! I eat it just about every day for breakfast with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit and it never gets old.
We have loved this granola recipe ever since I first made it and come back to it again and again! I always use puffed rice in the place of puffed quinoa as I cannot find it locally to where I live and I think the combo of two different grains within a granola recipe makes for a delicious change. I have always been a big fan of dried mango and last time I made this I also added in some chopped dried apricots which paired exceedingly well. Highly recommend!
This is now my go-to granola recipe! I usually do a combination of whatever nuts I have around (I prefer sliced almonds, pistachios for a pop of green, pumpkin seeds, chopped hazelnuts) and dried cranberries. I also like doing puffed rice instead of puffed quinoa. This granola also burns easily (may be my oven) but I had to do it 25F lower and take it out a few minutes earlier. The nut butter makes this such a decadent and satisfying granola without being too heavy.
I absolutely LOVE this granola recipe! I have made it over and over, mixing it up with different nuts and dried fruit sometimes. Such a good basic recipe that makes a crispy and not to crunchy granola.
Nice, crispy granola. It’s really pleasant to emphasise the deep, earthy flavour with almond butter. I manage still to get a good result without adding any brown sugar, which is a big benefit for me as a diabetic👏🏼
I didn’t have puffed quinoa, so I replaced it with rolled rye flakes. And I used dried apricots instead of mango. I think that this granola will be perfect for smoothie bowls with tropical or sweet sour fruits and berries 💡
Coming from the Netherlands myself, where do you buy stuff like puffed quinoa, almond butter and old-fashioned rolled oats? I can never find stuff like this at the Albert Heijn! Love your videos and recipes! Alvast bedankt :)
Oh my gosh this is bomb... Thank you so much for this recipe! I ate it fresh this morning with almond milk and fresh blueberries. And I also have a love for chocolate Sadia, so I included dark chocolate in the granola and it was perfect : )
This granola is so addictive! Because I could not find puffed quinoa and cannot have almond butter, I substituted kamut khorasan puffs and sunflower seed butter. Also, I used sunflower seeds in lieu of the almonds and pumpkin seeds, as well as agave for the maple syrup. Finally, I did not have brown sugar, so I just added about a quarter teaspoon of molasses to cane sugar. I could finish the whole thing by myself, it is that good!
Hello Sadia & PUL team!
I would like to make this recipe while watching my weight, do you think it'll be okay if use 1/8th a cup of oil and 1/8th a cup of brown sugar instead of the suggested quantities?
Can i substitute the vegetable oil for coconut oil?
