Gluten-Free Granola

Sick of store bought granola? I was definitely sick of reading labels and seeing so many forms of sugar and additives! I came up with this recipe and everyone who has made it raves about it!

Are Oats Gluten-Free?

Oats are naturally gluten-free, but stray wheat, rye, or barley can be introduced during the harvesting and transportation. Therefore I always buy gluten-free rolled oats.

Those chunky granola clusters are the BEST.

Eat homemade granola with:

  • Nut milk and berries
  • Yogurt
  • Smoothie bowls
  • As a snack
  • On top of Ice Cream
  • With banana or an apple and nut butter

Gluten-free Granola | Lexi's Clean Kitchen
  • Author: Lexi
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups organic gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup nuts/seeds (I use slivered raw almonds, chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and whole raw almonds)
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Dash of salt
  • Optional: 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup raw organic honey
  • 3 tablespoons organic pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons organic molasses
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/2 cup dried fruit
  • 1 large egg white, whisked well until frothy

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or baking sheet liner and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine organic oats, nuts/seeds, and flaxseed meal, with cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice (if using), a dash of salt, and optional coconut sugar if adding.
  4. In a small saucepan heat the oil, honey, vanilla extract, and pure maple syrup, and molasses. Once the mixture starts to boil, take off heat and pour over nut mixture. Mix well.
  5. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the egg white until frothy. Add to the granola mixture and mix well.
  6. Pour onto baking sheet and bake, until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid burning. Add the dried fruit of choice and stir well.
  7. Let cool, without mixing, and once cool break into clusters and store in an air-tight container for 2-4 weeks.

Notes

I generally add the dried fruit as I eat. When mixed in during baking, and then stored I have found that the dried fruit gets hard after about a week. If you are serving the granola right away, feel free to mix them in.

Adding whisked egg whites to the granola helps create clusters and make it extra crunchy!

  1. Never buy store bought granola again!!! This granola tastes exactly like store bought granola, maybe even a little better! I just maybe this last night and I already LOVE it!!!!

  2. This turned out great! It’s so easy to make, I was even able to make it in my college dorm kitchen – which my whole floor thanked me for because I made our floor smell AMAZING! Definitely going to make this again!

  3. This sounds delicious! Going to try this recipe next time I’m making granola! When would I add in the egg whites?

  4. I watched the video and it mentions adding in coconut sugar. The recipe on this email does not mention coconut sugar. I am thinking 1/4 cup?

  5. Family favorite in my house. I make this regularly for my gluten free hubby who eats it with rice chex cereal and milk in the morning. I love it with plain nonfat greek yogurt and a little drizzle of honey. I dont do the egg white part, and I find we get lots of clusters just by breaking it apart into bigger pieces when I am removing from the sheet pan.

  6. I use the pumpkin pie spice (or apple pie spice), but not the coconut sugar, or dried fruit.

  7. This granola tastes amazing! Do you need to refrigerate it or just leave in the counter? Thanks!

    1. It is ok to leave it on the counter, but if you store it in the refrigerator it will last longer!

  8. Looks amazing! Can’t wait to make it. I love all your recipes. What brand of GF oats and molasses do you buy?
