Recipe Ingredients

You’ll need the following ingredients to make this Homemade Matcha Granola:

Matcha granola ingredients.
  • Rolled oats: I recommend old-fashioned rolled oats for their enjoyable texture.
  • Nuts and dry fruits: Choose your favorites. In this recipe, I use almonds, walnuts, raisins, and cranberries. Other options include pecans, cashews, goji berries, figs, dates, and more.
  • Matcha powder is graded according to quality. While ceremonial-grade matcha is used for traditional tea ceremonies, culinary-grade matcha is a good choice for making matcha latte and dessert at an affordable price. Please note that some other types of matcha powder contain sugar.
  • Oil: You can use any oil that does not have a strong smell or flavor, such as light vegetable oil.
  • Maple syrup: Honey or agave syrup can be used as a substitute.

Recipe Tips

  • If your oven doesn’t heat evenly, bake for 5 minutes, then rotate the baking tray 180 degrees and bake for the remaining 5 minutes. This will ensure more even baking without burning the granola.
  • Using an airtight container is convenient when mixing dry fruits. Close the lid tightly and shake the container well.

Storage

Homemade matcha granola will last for a couple of months at room temperature. (But I’m sure it will be gone within a couple of weeks!)
