Homemade Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Granola Recipe Plus Fun Ways To Eat It

This gluten-free granola recipe is so easy to make, contains no grains of any kind of sugar. We do, however, add some chopped dates for a little natural sweetness (you can leave this out if you’d like).

You choose any type of nuts that you may have, such as macadamia, cashews, brazil nuts – just remember to roughly chop them. Once your granola has cooked, you can add extras like goji berries, sesame seeds or dried fruit of your choosing. This recipe is Paleo-diet friendly and Keto-diet friendly, sans the dates.

What You Need:

  • 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup pecans nuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/3 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 10 Medjool dates, chopped
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • Pinch ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, making sure that the coconut oil coats everything evenly.
  3. Spread the granola onto a baking tray lined with wax paper and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool, then pop the mixture into a large sealable container.

3 Ways To Eat Your Granola (that does not include adding milk)

  1. Mash one banana, mix in one tablespoon of nut butter and heat for 30 seconds to “melt” slightly until it has a similar consistency to yoghurt. Mix in granola and enjoy. This is a great dairy-free, vegan alternative.
  2. Portion your granola into little zip-lock bags and use it as a trail mix for hikes or snacks.
  3. Top your smoothie bowls with granola for extra crunch and nutrients.
