The first day of Autumn is quickly approaching and it's still 95 degrees where we live! I decided I'm going to go ahead and ignore the weather and pretend that it is Fall here by making this delicious Gluten Free Vanilla Almond Granola!
Although I don't think I'll last long outside in a trench and over-the-knee boots, I can at least make my home feel like it. I've decorated with pumpkins and brought out the sweet-smelling candles, but best of all is the Fall cooking! I'm obsessing over soups and comfort baked goods right now.
I occasionally eat oats, and this is one of my favorite granola recipes for those times. I was able to find Organic Certified Gluten Free Rolled Oats at Whole Foods.
The flax seeds in this recipe contribute a fantastic amount of essential vitamins and minerals; but even more importantly: fiber, antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids! Talk about healthy breakfast.
I love eating this granola in the morning with a little almond milk and fresh blueberries. You can also just eat it by the handful throughout the day as a snack!
This is the first granola recipe I have ever made, and it is fabulous! I used 1/2 cup almonds and added 1/2 cup of cashews, walnuts and pumpkin seeds. Everything else, I did as the recipe indicated. It is great with berries and almond milk. Thank you for your great recipes!
It says to preheat the oven to 165, but then Bake at 250? Sorry – just a bit confused!
I was hoping to make this but am also confused regarding which temperature to use please help! thanks!

I believe the 160 degrees is to dehydrate for 20 hours

Is this considered a paleo breakfast and it has grains, even if they’re gluten-free? I’m trying to go grain-free because they don’t agree with me and I have a thyroid issue.
This granola is delicious! I used 4 cups of oatmeal, avocado oil instead of olive and maple syrup instead of honey, just out of preference. I ate WAY too much when it was done, lol! Thank you for a great recipe!
You’re so welcome!
By far the best granola I have ever made. I have stopped the search for other, new granola recipes. I know everyone is trying to entice you that theirs is the best, and you must try it but it is all a ruse. This is the one and I can finally rest easy as the search has stopped. 🙂 Thank you 🙂
Turned out great!! How long will this last? Room temperature in pantry or refrigerator? —storage tips appreciated
Hi! You can store in an airtight container in your pantry for up a month!
