The Recipe: Gluten Free Dairy Free Maple Cinnamon Granola


  • 4 cup gluten free certified rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup raw walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup raw pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup ground flax, I used golden flax seed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups dried cranberries


  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oats, almonds, walnuts, pistachios, sunflower seeds, ground flax, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil and maple syrup. Pour the mixture over the oats and nuts, and tossing with a spatula until evenly incorporated. Spread the mixture out on a large rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan. Bake for about 60 minutes, stirring once or twice.
  • Allow the granola to cool completely on the pan. Stir in the dried cranberries, and transfer to an airtight container.
  • Freezing Directions: Put cooled mixture into a gallon sized freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible, seal, label and freeze.
  • To serve: Thaw.
