I go in phases with granola. I’ll find a recipe that I like, and that’s all I eat for the whole week. Then randomly I’ll get sick of it, and I won’t touch the stuff. But this granola, THIS GRANOLA . . . is different. This granola I can’t (I won’t) get sick of eating. It’s the perfect everyday granola: not too complicated, but not too simple. It has just the right amount of crunch, without being hard or overly crispy. It’s not too heavy-handed with any single flavor, and has perfect amount of sweetness. Did I mention it’s vegan and gluten-free? Serve it however you typically prefer to eat your granola.

Everyday Granola {Gluten-Free + Vegan}

The perfect everyday, gluten-free, vegan granola with just the right amount of crunch. It's not too heavy-handed with any single flavor, and has the perfect amount of sweetness.
Servings: 6 cups



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix the oats, almonds, flax seeds, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom together in a large bowl. Stir thoroughly to combine.
  3. Add in the olive oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir to evenly coat the dry ingredients with the wet.
  4. Turn the granola out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until golden, stirring every 10 minutes to make sure the granola is cooking evenly.
  5. Stir in the coconut flakes in the last 10 minutes of baking.
  6. Remove from the oven and add the chopped cranberries. Stir to combine.
  7. Let cool before eating. Don't worry if it still seems a little wet when you take it out of the oven, it will crisp up in the cooling process.
  8. Store in an airtight container up to 7 days

Your fiber rich granola recipe contains everything my heart desires for a great start in the day. But I would replace olive oil with the more heat resistant coconut oil. My cold pressed extra virgin olive oil is just too precious for baking,;)

I could absolutely eat my weight in this granola (and what a perfect late night snack idea!).

Yummmmm!!!! This would make for a perfect breakfast as well as a great afternoon snack! And that look on Grizzly’s face? Priceless! Good boy!

Do you have nutrition facts for this yummy granola?

I don’t have them handy, but you should be able to plug into an online nutrition calculator. Thanks for stopping by!!

THIS is the recipe I needed. I usually get REALLY intimidated by a bunch of granola recipes and I hate that they require me to buy a ton of ingredients. Pretty sure I can pull all this from my pantry. x

Thanks Supal!! Yeah, there’s something about this one that just hits the spot every time.
