I feared oats for years. Well, I mostly feared grains. I thought they would irritate my stomach, cause gut issues, and lead me to weight issues. But I also felt the same way about beans…until 2020 when I started eating beans on a regular basis and became healthier than ever before. And during that food experimentation, I also started eating oats a few times a week. And guess what? No gut issues and no weight gain. Just same ole me…but happier and healthier! So no, oats are not paleo. But if you would like paleo granola recipe, check out this one! I got you, boo. And if you’re like me, experimenting and trying foods you haven’t ate in years, I hope you love this granola as much as I do! It’s delicious on it’s own, but when you mix it with some milk, oh lawdy, it’s absolutely divine.

Speaking of granola…have you tried Granola Butter? It is legit one of my favorite snacks of all time. I don’t even put it on anything, I just eat it with a spoon. We have a monthly subscription to it because it disappears so quickly in our house. And I can’t even remember the last time I bought a nut butter because all we care about now is Granola Butter. Actually, as I type this, Brian is behind me eating a massive spoonful of it. It’s glorious. And I feel like it’s going to be the next business that blows up and is bought out for $600M, like RxBars. No one else is doing it so there time is coming. I just know it. I follow the owner on IG and she busts her ass every single day, so I can’t wait to see her become a massive millionaire someday. It’s gonna be rad. Until then, I plan on giving her all my money every month.

Any other companies out there that you love that are doing really unique things? I just got my hands on Crossrope, which is a jump rope brand that pairs up with an app so you can work on your jumping skills, get into workouts, and get results. I’m really digging them, too. Since I rarely do cardio these days, I’m excited to start jumping rope more to work on my stamina a bit. I’m also still really obsessed with our Tonal. Brian uses it every single day and I’ve been loving it for stretching and yoga workouts. I just love seeing a company creating something so incredibly innovative. Now tell me what companies you’re loving right now! I’m always excited to try something new!

Snickerdoodle Granola

  • Author: juli
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 35 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 cups 1x



For topping


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, maple syrup, butter, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt until combined.
  3. Pour onto baking sheet, spread oats into a flat layer and press into the parchment paper. This will make it nice and chunky once cooled. Mix together maple sugar, cinnamon and coarse salt. Sprinkle half on top of the oats and save the other half for later.
  4. Place in the oven to bake for 20 minutes, turn baking sheet, then bake for another 15 minutes. Once done baking, sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture on top. Let cool COMPLETELY on the baking sheet before breaking apart.
  5. Eat by itself…but it’s WAY better in some milk because the milk gets all cinnamon-y and the bit of coarse makes the flavors really pop. Just trust me!


*You can use a different type of fat such as coconut oil, but butter is what makes it taste more like a snickerdoodle compared to other fats

  2. Liz says:

    I was eating Quinn’s Maple Almondbutter stuffed Pretzels while reading this so I am going to go with Quinn’s pretzels. I love all of them.

  3. Jaimee says:

    Yum, this recipe looks so good! I’ve been using granola butter for a couple years now. I LOVE the stuff. I love putting it on top of my yogurt or chia pudding.

    1. Melina Higgins says:

      When I saw you post this recipe my first thought was “I wonder if I can make this and blend it into granola butter”. It’s baking now and it smells soooo delicious. I can’t wait to try it when it’s all done!

  4. Christina B says:

    So easy to make, had all of the ingredients on hand! Dangerously delicious.

  5. alicia says:

    Can’t wait to try this recipe! And yes the granola butter is amazing! I am excited to try their new cookie dough flavor when it comes out. I recently put a jar of the chocolate flavor in the fridge and just dip in for a spoonful at least once a day. It hardens up and is like cookie dough and brownie made a baby! YUM

    1. juli says:

      i’ve seen that on her stories and I need to do this! it sounds so damn good!

  6. Melissa says:

    This was amazing!!! Safe and fair birthday granola better watch out! The only thing wrong with the recipe is it should come with a warning to double because it will be gone as soon as it cools!

    1. juli says:

      omg their granola is so unbelievable!

  7. Montana G says:

    LOVE this recipe! Made it and the hubby was obsessed with it. I add a bit of almond extract and it goes really well with the butter taste.

    1. juli says:

      ooooo almond extract sounds divine! i’ll have to try that out!

  8. Sofie says:

    I come back to this recipe every week!! It’s sooo good and cinnamon is a flavor that goes on top of anything. Also making my own granola has been SUCH a money saver vs buying a bag plus I know all the ingredients are quality.

    1. juli says:

      yayyyyy!! you gotta try my chocolate granola next!!

  9. Jessica Romrell says:

    Hi! What’s the best place to store the oats? How long will they last in the fridge vs pantry?

    1. juli says:

      i store mine in the a sealed container in the pantry! and they’ve lasted for up to 2 weeks, but we haven’t had them around for longer than that haha!
