I'm popping in for a short recipe for granola (and then running around to finish 100+ things before the holiday is here!) It is identical to my favorite maple-pecan granola with one change: different grains. I love keeping a handful of flakes from different grains on hand. Quite often, the flakes are still consider a whole grain (which is great!) You can find a majority of these grain flakes in your local bulk-bin section or through Bob's Red Mill. Each grain brings with it unique flavors and a lovely crunch (the Kamut is especially a favorite of mine!) Experiment around with different combinations to find the one you like best! (If wanting to keep gluten-free, I recommend using buckwheat and oats.)

(PS- My pup decided today was a good day to photobomb almost every shot.)


Three-Grain Maple Granola

  • Author: Erin Alderson
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 60 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 mins
  • Yield: 3 cups 1x


  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup barley flakes
  • 2/3 cup kamut flakes
  • 1 cup pecan pieces
  • ¼ cup nut oil (pecan or walnut)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 300˚ and cover a baking tray with parchment (or silpat.)
  2. Combine oats, barley, kamut, pecans and salt, then whisk together oil and syrup. Pour over oats and continue to stir until all oats are covered.
  3. Pour oats on to tray and evenly spread into a thin layer. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Granola should be lightly browned and beginning to crisp when done. Remove and let sit until cool.


*Any grain flake will work- I've also used spelt, buckwheat, and wheat berry flakes.

  1. This looks delicious. I love granola and yogurt for breakfast. It's such a light meal to have in the mornings when you're first starting your day off. It doesn't leave you feeling sluggish like other foods.

  2. Hahaha, I was wondering what that fluffy thing was in the foreground!? Is that a rabbit?

  3. Looks so delicious! How have I only just found your blog - everything looks so delicious!
