Lemon Cranberry Granola

It’s no secret that I have a borderline obsession with granola, but this recipe is my current go-to. Lemon and cranberry are two of my favorite flavors, and they combine deliciously here to create a bright-tasting granola that is perfect for a sweet summer breakfast.

I like to use mine on top of yogurt, but it’s also perfect for snacking by the handful. And with no oil, butter, or refined sugar, it’s wonderfully nutritious, too!


Lemon Cranberry Granola

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal
  • ½ cup nuts and/or seeds of choice
  • 2-4 tablespoons granulated sweetener (optional)
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  • zest of one lemon
  • dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300° and grease a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, cereal, nuts/seeds, and, if using, the granulated sweetener.
  3. Pour in the maple syrup, lemon extract, and lemon zest, and stir until everything is coated.
  4. Spread the granola evenly onto the sheet and bake for 20-22 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  5. When the granola has cooled completely, stir in the dried cranberries.

Thinking Out Loud

  2. I am still without an oven and it’s stressing me out. For one thing, I’m running low on granola. 😉 For another, I have a desperate cake craving, and cake just tastes better when you’ve made it yourself! When the oven is finally fixed (fingers crossed for Monday!), I’m going to have cake for every meal, in celebration.

    This looks delicious. We just got back from vacation and the hotel we were staying in served a complimentary cup of granola and fruit over yogurt every morning for breakfast. I really enjoyed it and was just thinking I should make some for myself now that I am home. I have pinned your recipe and am looking forward to trying it out.
