Homemade Gluten-Free Granola

Easy, super-tasty vegan friendly granola. No sugar. No honey. Sweetened only with a modest amount of pure maple syrup. Switch out the dried organic cranberries for your favorite dried fruit, if you prefer.

Homemade Gluten-Free Granola


4 cups certified gluten-free rolled oats
1/2 cup pure organic maple syrup
6 tablespoons avocado oil, or light olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt


1 cup organic (apple juice sweetened) dried cranberries
1/2 rounded cup rough-chopped organic Brazil nuts or almonds
1/2 rounded cup rough-chopped organic pecans or walnuts


1. Preheat the oven to 325º. Take out two baking sheets and set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, Brazil nuts, and pecans.

3. In a glass measuring cup, combine the maple syrup, olive oil, cinnamon and sea salt. Mix well with a fork. Drizzle the syrup mixture over the oats, and stir as you go. Gently keep stirring until all the oats are coated with the syrup blend.

4. Spread the granola mixture onto the two baking sheets. Bake in the center of the oven for roughly 25-30 minutes until golden and toasty. Check the granola half way through baking time to stir gently.

5. Remove from the oven and allow the pans to cool a bit. Pour the cooled granola into a large bowl. Add in the dried cranberries, your choice of chopped nuts, and stir. Store in an air-tight container.
