homemade hemp granola

I’m pretty sure we can all agree that granola is a well-loved breakfast treat. Truthfully, if there’s a bag somewhere in my house, I can’t stop myself from grabbing a handful every now and then. But store-bought granola is packed with calories, bad sugars, and ingredients you probably can’t pronounce. Making this homemade hemp granola will change your life! Once you realize how easy and delicious it is, you’ll be saying buh-bye to any of that crap you bought before. 

This recipe gets two check marks for being both vegan AND gluten free. In just about 30 minutes, your house will be wafting with the sweet smells of this crunchy baked goodness. You can throw this homemade hemp granola on basically anything. I recommend putting some on smoothies or vegan ice cream for starters!

  1. Do you have a suggestion for using vanilla extract instead of vanilla podwer? I got to the check out and realized it was $40 for vanilla podwer, so I put it back. I have all other ingredients on hand and would love to bake these this afternoon 😊
