Almond Butter Granola-easy homemade granola made with almond butter. Enjoy for breakfast or as a healthy snack! 

Almond Butter Granola Recipe

I love making homemade granola. It’s so simple and always tastes much better than store bought granola. This easy Almond Butter Granola is my new favorite recipe. I made it because I wanted a healthy snack, but I ended up eating most of the pan by myself, so I guess there went the healthy part. Oops! I made it again and put it away in glass jars so I wouldn’t eat it all in one sitting and so I would have some in our pantry for breakfast and snacking. It is great to have on hand.

Almond Butter Granola Recipe

The secret ingredient is almond butter, well I guess it really isn’t a secret because I already told you it was Almond Butter Granola, but the almond butter is the key to this granola. It gives it the BEST flavor and makes the granola crisp and clumpy. I like to use Justin’s Maple Almond Butter, but any almond butter will work. You can use your favorite.

Almond Butter Granola Recipe

I mix almond butter with pure maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. I pour the mixture over oats, almonds, flaxseed, cinnamon, and sea salt. Bake until the granola gets nice and toasty and then let it cool on the pan. If you want the granola to be clumpy, DON’T stir the granola on the pan while it is cooling. It will set up and clump up as it cools.

You can eat the Almond Butter Granola with yogurt, milk, or you can eat it right from the pan. I had handful after handful. You can store it in glass jars or an airtight container for up to one month. I don’t think our granola will ever last that long because it is SO good, I can never stop eating it. Good thing it is super easy to make, I don’t mind making it over and over! Enjoy!

  1. I’ve made this before and it’s deliciously addicting! I am low on ingredients and I’m wondering if subbing melted butter for coconut oil would work? And would sliced almonds get too well done?

    1. Sure, you can use melted butter. If you want to use sliced almonds, I would wait 15 minutes to add them or you can stir them in after.

  2. I love every recipe of yours that I’ve tried, but I am allergic to nuts and here in Toronto we cannot send anything with nuts to school.

    Could this granola be made with sunflower seed butter instead? Pumpkin seeds instead of the nuts?
    Thank you!

    This granola is absolutely delicious and highly addictive! I skip the flax due to allergies and increase the cinnamon to one tsp. I find that mine is done cooking at about 22 minutes. I like the flavor better using raw almonds, since pre-roasted ones get super toasty. I’ve also used pecan butter (made in the vitamix) and pecans in place of almond butter/almonds and it’s equally delicious. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

    This is delicious. Omg, I can’t stop eating this. I added raisins, and they add a beautiful sweetness combined with the cinnamon and a great contrast to the almonds and oats. I used sliced almonds and they are delicious.

  5. 5 stars
    I used butter because I didn’t have any coconut oil. I used a cup of hand crushed pistachios and maybe a ¼ cup of shaved almonds. I also used a trilogy seed mix of flax, chia and hemp.
    Great recipe. Will use again.

  6. 5 stars
    I really enjoyed this granola recipe. I love using it as a topper for my smoothie in the morning.

    Love this recipe! I love that you have flax meal added and that it is low on sugar. (I also added some Hemp hearts and pepitas.) With this said I appreciate the versatility of the recipe! Wonderful and easy, thank you!! I will for sure make this again!

  8. 5 stars
    I love this recipe. I add probably 2 cups of nuts: almonds, pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and add coconut shreds at halfway stir time. Thank you for this recipe.
