  • 1 cup rolled oats

This quick and healthy granola recipe can be enjoyed like cereal with milk or sprinkled over yogurt to make an easy parfait. Serve with a banana for a balanced breakfast.


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine maple syrup, oil and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir in oat, pecans, cinnamon and salt until evenly combined. Evenly spread out onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake the granola, stirring halfway through, until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely before storing.


  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use oats that are labeled “gluten-free,” as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
  • To make ahead: Store cooled granola airtight for up to 2 weeks.
