Gluten free and vegan granola recipe

Easy gluten-free granola recipe


This quick and easy gluten-free granola recipe is perfect for a healthy and delicious breakfast. An energetic, nutritious and crunchy mix with oat flakes, nuts (such as walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pistachios) dried fruit (such as raisins, currants, blueberries, coconut), maple syrup or honey and vegetal oil.

A homemade granola recipe is a great way to use up the odd bits of nuts or dried fruit. This tasty source of energy goes well with yogurt and fresh fruit, or your favorite plant-based milk. Most important, it can be kept for a week in a convenient jar.

The mix of ingredients with which you can compose the granola is customizable. This version with cinnamon and ginger powder is my favorite (you can also use pumpkin pie spice mix). Here are a few other ideas to get you started: you can add chocolate chips and coconut flakes. Or make it tropical with dried bananas and mango pieces. Likewise, raisins, dried apricots or dates will work.

Almost every ingredient is replaceable. If you have issues with oats, sub them with quinoa or buckwheat flakes. Same thing if you don’t find the chestnut flakes. Make sure to choose a light-flavored vegetal oil to not affect the taste. Use maple syrup instead of honey to keep it vegan. The recipe is already naturally dairy-free and lactose-free.
