Maple festive granola

Breakfast and Brunch / Christmas

Festive maple granola
6 portions


  • 170ml pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust taste)
  • 60ml apple juice
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 360g rolled oats
  • 64g nuts (pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, etc.)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 64g dried fruit (apples, apricots, dates, raisins, cranberries, cherries, etc.)


  1. Preheat oven to 190ºC.
  2. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper or foil.
  3. In a cup, combine half of the maple syrup, the apple juice and oil.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts and cinnamon.
  5. Add the maple syrup mixture and stir well to coat all the ingredients.
  6. Divide equally between the two baking sheets and spread evenly.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, until the granola is fragrant and golden. Remove from the oven and pour the granola back into the large bowl.
  8. Add the remaining maple syrup and the dried fruit; mix well.
  9. Allow to cool completely; the granola will crisp as it cools.
  10. Store in an airtight container.

Maple syrup and colourful dried fruit add lifting sweetness to this granola, which is both low in fat and high in carbohydrates.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
