These easy nut granola clusters are incredibly simple to make and super delicious. I love eating them for breakfast together with fresh fruit and either coconut yoghurt or plant-based milk. However, I also like to snack on these clusters throughout the day.
The clusters are made with only 9 ingredients. I like to use almonds, cashews and macadamias in this recipe. However, feel free to use different nuts if you like, for example, pecans to cashews. The vanilla and cinnamon add some extra flavour to the clusters and the rice malt syrup is responsible for them to hold together.
To ensure even toasting, turn the tray by 180 degrees after 10 minutes of baking. It’s also really important to let the granola cool down completely. This way you not only save yourself from burning your fingers but you can also easily break the granola “sheet” into “clusters”.
