Chai Masala Homemade Granola

Chai Masala Homemade Granola

Here's one of my favorite recipes for homemade granola! What I absolutely love about this recipe is you can customize it in so many ways, it really becomes a great way to get rid of small amounts of nuts and seeds you might have hiding in your pantry. This one has a mix of oats, buckwheat groats, coconut flakes, a variety of seeds and nuts and maple syrup for a little sweetening. Prior to baking I added a tablespoon of my favorite chai masala to the granola to give it some nostalgic flavors of my childhood. You can use any seasoning powder you wish for this trip. You'll find the original recipe by author and chef Amy Chaplin here.

I love to serve this sprinkled on my favorite greek yogurt in the morning. Enjoy!

  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (gluten-free if necessary) or other rolled grain
  • 2 cups raw buckwheat groats
  • 2 cups dried unsweetened large flake coconut
  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 1 cup mix of whole pecans and chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pepitas
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw black and white sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp chai masala powder
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup neutral oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 325F
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and stir gently until well incorporated
  3. Pour the ingredients on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for approximately 30 minutes until nutty and fragrant. Keep an eye on the oven at the 20 minute mark to make sure the large coconut flakes do not burn. If they're starting to turn too dark, cover the granola with aluminum foil and continue baking until you reach the 30 minute mark.
