Does your family love granola? For us, it’s a healthy alternative to cereal for those on-the-run breakfasts when you’re craving a little crunch! This healthy homemade granola recipe is really easy to make and it’s so much cheaper than the organic brands in the store. And did I mention it’s a gluten-free granola recipe? Win!

Customize Your Healthy Homemade Granola Recipe!

The great thing about granola is you can start with a base then customize with your favorite nuts, dried fruits, some coconut, or even a few healthy chocolate chips. I like to change it up. Sometimes we use sliced almonds. Sometimes chopped pecans. Often we add chia seeds for their benefits. You can use half raw local honey and half maple syrup, or all maple syrup.

This gluten free granola recipe is fantastic mixed with plain dairy-free yogurts like Daiya or our homemade almond milk.

Serves: 9 cups
  1. Preheat the oven to 225°F.
  2. Combine the oats, coconut oil, honey, maple syrup, sea salt, vanilla, and chia seeds (if using) in a large bowl.
  3. Distribute the mixture evenly onto 2-3 large baking dishes or cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes to ensure the granola crisps evenly.
  5. If using coconut flakes or nuts: Take the granola out of the oven just before done. Add the coconut flakes and pecans. Bake for 5 more minutes or until lightly golden.
  6. If adding fruit or chocolate: Let the granola cool completely before adding any extras.
  7. Store in an air-tight container for 2-3 weeks. Enjoy!
* You can also use fresh cherries. Just cut them in half and place them in the tray before baking the granola.
** We love using Lily’s Dark Chocolate Baking Chips that are stevia-sweetened. You can also use Hu Chocolate Baking Gems.
