Everyday Granola

This is my recipe for my easy everyday granola! I love that this recipe only has 4 ingredients and is totally customizable, using whatever you have in your pantry.

Not to mention, it’s gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free! Such a great alternative to sugary breakfast cereals.

To make things easy, I used this trail mix from Target in my recipe. It has almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, pecans, and cranberries. You can definitely use bulk nuts or seeds though!

After I chopped the nuts and seeds, I added the almond flour, gluten-free oats, maple syrup, and cinnamon powder to the bowl.

Then stirred to coat it well! I spread it evenly on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, and baked for about 15 minutes, turning it halfway through.

Here’s the result! Perfectly golden brown granola. Its irresistible fresh out of the oven!

Easy Everyday Granola

  • 2 cups mixed nuts and seeds (I used Archer Farms Omega-3 trail mix for this batch- it has pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, and cranberries)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup oats (I used gluten-free organic oats)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, organic if possible
  • Any other additions you want- shredded coconut, dried fruit, I added a few shakes of cinnamon for this batch!


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Chop nuts and seeds using a hand chopper or food processor.
  3. In a large bowl, add nut/seed mixture to all other ingredients.
  4. Stir to coat the mixture well.
  5. Transfer granola to a parchment-paper lined baking sheet and spread into a thin layer.
  6. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through to ensure even toasting.
  7. Serve and enjoy! If you don’t use all of it at once, store in a mason jar or other container. You can toast it in the oven again if it gets soft.

My favorite way to eat granola is in a bowl with almond milk, like cereal. I’m not much of a yogurt eater, but this would be delicious with coconut milk yogurt! How do you like to enjoy granola?
