Grain-free granola is the perfect crunchy topping for a smoothie bowl, yogurt bowl, or homemade trail mix!
I always keep some sort of granola or nut mix in my pantry, but I always prefer making my own whenever my nut & seed supply accumulate. I used a combination of different nuts and seeds like almonds, walnuts, sesame seeds and chia seeds, making this the perfect gluten-free treat that’s packed with heart-healthy fats.
The nuts and seeds get mixed together with date syrup and coconut oil, and come out so crisp and crunchy.
What you’ll need to make grain-free granola:
- sesame seeds
- chia seeds
- coconut oil
- date syrup
- vanilla extract
- Combine the nuts & seeds together in a large bowl
- Melt the coconut oil then whisk in the date syrup and vanilla extract until smooth
- Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir to combine
- Flatten onto a parchment lined sheet pan then bake for 25-30 minutes
- Let cool completely, then break into clusters
How to store your granola
I store my granola in an air-tight jar on the counter or refrigerator. It will stays fresh for up to 2 weeks, but it can also be frozen for up to 3 months and enjoyed straight from the freezer.
