Mmmm… Seedy Vegan Breakfast Granola. This one’s a classic. Granolas are so easy to make, easy to eat, and easy to make ahead! (That might be my favorite thing about granolas, and that’s saying a lot because they’re downright delicious.) I love that we can make a big batch on the weekend and have incredible breakfasts all week long.
I’ll take the opportunity to say it now… this recipe makes a GENEROUS batch. It fills up a large rimmed baking sheet. But since the whole point of granola is that it stores well, is ready to eat, and is super popular with everyone in the house, we think the big batch is the perfect amount.
How do I store granola?
Pretty much the same way you store breakfast cereal.. in the pantry or on the countertop. An airtight container works best, and keep it out of direct sunlight. The freezer works well, too. We like to make multiple flavors of granola all at once, and then freeze them in airtight containers. That way, in the morning we can each choose any flavor we want and it’s always super fresh. Of all places though, avoid the fridge! Granola goes soft in the fridge and can absorb fridge odors if the container isn’t completely airtight. Yuck.
Can I substitute different nuts and seeds?
Yes! So many times, yes! That’s the beauty of granola. It’s very substitutable as long as you stick close to the same ratios. In other words, do you prefer cashews to pecans? Not a problem. Sub in the 1/2 cup cashews for the 1/2 cup pecans as a straight-up swap. Now, how about say… chia seeds in place of sunflower seeds? Sure! But since the chia seeds are super tiny, a lot more of them will fit in a 1/2 cup than sunflower seeds. Sub smaller seeds like this out by weight, instead of volume.
How do you eat your granola?

In our house, granola gets drowned in soy milk. That’s our go-to granola method. That being said, we’re starting to up our “Berries and Coconut Yogurt” game in the summers. We do a lot of camping, and I have a feeling next summer will be all about the yogurt parfait with crunchy granola on top.
