Everyone needs a go-to granola recipe. This one is it for me, and could be it for you. Considering the prices of store-bought granola and all of the unnecessary added ingredients (like, loads of sugar), it makes sense to make your own granola. For one, it’s much healthier. Secondly, it’s a lot cheaper to make your own. And thirdly, it tastes way better. This Easy 5-Ingredient Granola perfectly sweetened and crunchy, made with simple yet wholesome ingredients that are vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free. You’ll love the delicious combination of flavors and textures in every bite! So, this is your sign, make this homemade granola and you’ll never go back to buying mediocre store-bought granola!

You might be wondering what these 5 ingredients are that make up this delicious granola? Starting with a base of gluten-free oats, this homemade granola is packed with nutritious goodness. It’s sweetened with a natural unrefined sweetener a/k/a maple syrup, giving it just the right amount of sweetness without the guilt. The addition of coconut oil helps achieve that notorious crunch. Sliced almonds are added for a nice texture and nutritious boost. Lastly, shredded coconut adds a delicious element of flavor.

Ingredients – Easy 5-Ingredient Granola

 Gluten Free Rolled Oats – feel free to use regular oats if you are not gluten free.

• Sliced Almonds – feel free to substitute for nut of choice.

Shredded Coconut – unsweetened.

Maple Syruphoney works great in this too, but it’s not technically vegan. Agave will also work.

• Coconut Oil – this helps everything stick together and adds a bit of crunch. 

What’s great about this granola is that you can enjoy it as-is (trust me, it’s delicious), or you can customize it to your liking by adding some of your favorite ingredients, such as pecans, walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, cinnamon, vanilla extract, the list goes on.
