Holy moly. Beware.
When I say this vegan Chunky Grain Free Granola is ADDICTING, I’m not kidding in the least. I must hold myself back from eating the entire batch. Or do I?
Yes probably because I want to sprinkle those gorgeous clusters on tomorrow’s fruit and coconut yogurt bowl. Or snack on it by the handful. Or sprinkle it on some ice cream. Or pour some almond milk over it for homemade granola cereal. Or eat it for dinner. Kidding.
While my former Sugar Free Cinnamon Crunch Granola recipe is delish… it contains oats which are not agreeing with me right now! It’s also not cluster-y because its sugar free. Now I’m all about that #sugarfreelife for happy hormones and balanced blood sugar but sometimes, you just want those scrumptious granola clusters! And the only way to do that is to use a sticky sweetener like maple syrup (or honey if not vegan).
So here we are with a new and improved granola recipe that you will come back to time and time again.
It’s just TOO perfect. Crunchy, sweet and salty clusters, infused with cinnamon. Only 5 minutes of prep and 20 minutes in the oven…. your kitchen will smell like absolute heaven. Refined sugar free, gluten free, oil free and all the things. Feel free to swap in/out any kind of nut or seed you want to. It’s very flexible! And that’s all you really need to know.

This looks amazing!
Will it work if I use regular flour or does it have to be almond flour? Also, is almond flour just ground up almonds in a blender or food processor until it looks like flour? Thank you!
I Make this for our Family Weekly. My toddler loves it. We add It to almond milk w/ some berrys, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and ground flax. His new favorite “cocos” Makes me feel better that he chooses this and healthy seeds and berries for breakfast over high sugar cereal. He is actually getting full and getting lots of good nutrients and protein as well as fats. I love it as well. I feel so energetic, full and balanced.
I learned so much about my body after reading your book, and have eagerly embraced the idea of eating for your cycle. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I have been thinking of ways to spice up dairy-free yogurt and this is going at the top of the list. I can’t wait to try it next week!
This looks so good!
