Homemade granola has to be one of the easiest breakfast recipes to make in the kitchen. Purchasing store bought granola can be such a waste of money because making homemade granola is just so easy.

The thing I love most about making granola from scratch is that you can use up items in your pantry to create any kind of granola you like. This Butter Pecan Granola happens to be a favorite of mine, and you might also like our Apple Pie Granola, our Small Batch Pumpkin Spice Granola and our Gingerbread Granola too.

Homemade Granola

If you have a small amount of leftover nuts, like walnuts or pecans, toss them in. Dried fruits, such as cranberries or raisins? Add them too! Think of this recipe as a guideline for a basic granola and customize it as you’d like. As long as you keep the ratios the same, it’s fine to substitute just about any nuts and dried fruits.

All granola has essentially the same ingredients; most often I use old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant), nuts, a sweetener, oil and salt. Add in any other ingredients to make as you’d like it; seeds, dried fruit, chocolate chips and spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg.

Butter Pecan Granola Recipe

For this Butter Pecan Granola recipe, I used chopped almonds and pecans. I also added shredded coconut to the mix to give it a wonderful slightly chewy texture.

The great butter pecan flavor comes from the roasted pecans, butter and vanilla. The taste is out of this world!

Butter Pecan Granola is sweetened with maple syrup and brown sugar. The brown sugar is added to the bowl filled with the oats and nuts.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat. Stir in the maple syrup. Then, pour the melted butter, maple syrup and vanilla into the bowl of oats and nuts and stir until the oats and nuts are completely coated.

Then, spread the granola out on a baking tray and bake it for 30 minutes.

Very easy.

I love eating this granola mixed in with my greek yogurt in the morning and my son mixes his granola with milk. I keep a jar filled with granola on my counter because it’s great to eat by the handfuls too.

  1. I am making my second batch in a week. So good! I made 1/2 batches because I’m the one who eats it in my house. Second time I used unsweetened coconut and it was still sweet enough


  2. I have an obsession with homemade granola, so I tried this recipe the minute I read it. It was so easy and tastes amazing! I did leave out the brown sugar because I don’t like things too sweet, and it was still the best granola I’ve ever had. Thank you so much for this great recipe. I’d give it more than 5 stars if I could. I’ll be making this one forever!

    1. Hi Heather, you will need something to hold it all together. Peanut or Almond Butter will do this. Heat about 1/2 cup of nut butter in the microwave and and add to the granola. Press the mixture into a pan and let cool completely before cutting into squares.

  3. This looks really good. I’m not coconut fan, but the rest sounds amazing. I always have a jar of homemade granola on my counter. This one will be up next!


  4. Oh my WORD. This is simply fantastic. After making it and telling my mom about it she made it for my siblings and they DEVOURED it. Even the ones that don’t like granola!! This was soooo good thank you for sharing!!


  5. Just discovered this recipe on Pinterest. Made the granola today & it is wonderful! Have never made my own granola before, but I definitely will be making this again – thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you so much for letting me know, Valerie. I’m so glad you liked the recipe. Homemade granola is so easy to make, I try to keep a container of it in my kitchen.

  6. Hi! I would like to try this recipe. I am not a fan of coconut and don’t have almonds. If I totally omit the almonds and coconut, can I use the same recipe or should I make adjustments?

    1. Hi Dia, If you leave out BOTH the coconut and the almonds, increase the oats by 1 cup.
      If you don’t have almonds, you can substitute with other nuts like peanuts or sunflower seeds OR add an additional 1/2 cup of pecans. If you do this, then only increase the oats by 1/2 cup.

    1. Hi Diane, this recipe will give you about 5 cups. Store the granola in an airtight container and it will be good for up to 2 weeks (mine never lasts that long, we eat it too quickly). Enjoy the recipe!

  7. This was soooooo delicious! My family dove in as soon as it came out of the oven. I did half cinnamon and half nutmeg because I love that combination. Thank you so much for giving us a new staple snack in our home.

    1. I’m so happy your family liked the recipe, thank you so much for letting me know. I really like your idea to add nutmeg, I love it combined with cinnamon too. Have a wonderful week!

  8. Laura @MotherWouldKnow

    Homemade granola is sooo much better than storebought. In my granola, I use oil instead of butter and haven’t added the vanilla – will have to try your version. It looks delicious!

  9. Tonia from TheGunnySack

    I can’t believe how expensive store bought granola is! Since butter pecan is one of my favorite flavors, I have to try this!

  10. Butter pecan granola? I am all in! We love granola around here. Big family (8 kids) and cereal wasn’t the best choice for us when they were growing up. I don’t make it nearly enough anymore! Thanks for the reminder and the recipe!

  11. I’ve been making homemade granola for years, so I am always interested to see how others do it. I think I’m going to have to try some brown sugar (I currently sweeten with either honey, agave, or maple syrup).
