Everybody simply loves this gluten free granola recipe with honey recipe. It’s a family favorite, and great to gift, too!

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

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  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.

Recipe 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!

    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.

  20. Angela says:

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