Gluten Free Maple Pecan Granola with Cranberries

This Gluten Free granola recipe is perfect for a quick breakfast or even just a quick snack! />


I love granola, but got tired of trying to find the perfect one. So I made this gluten free maple pecan granola with cranberries. It's got everything I wanted in a granola. Home made and gluten free.

It rained again. On Sunday. The whole weekend really. I’m so over it. SO OVER IT.

So, stuck in the house on Sunday morning because I REFUSED to go grocery shopping in the wet, I needed breakfast.

Milk? No….

Eggs? No…

Pancakes…enough for Pookah….

So I rummaged through my pantry and made one of my favorite things: granola.

I love granola, and I'm so glad I finally made some at home! This gluten free maple pecan granola is so GOOD!

And not just any granola, I made Gluten Free Maple Pecan Granola. And added Cranberries. Cause tis the season for them after all…

The thing I love the most about Granola is that it keeps. I can make a batch Sunday and eat on it all week. I put it over yogurt, I eat it with milk, I grab handfuls of it as I walk by the jar during the day.


Making your own granola is not hard! This gluten free maple pecan granola was so easy to make! And do GOOD!

It’s just so easy to make! So of course, I’m sharing my recipe with you this Monday morning ( and it’s STILL RAINING BY THE WAY).

Because sharing is caring!

    This sounds delicious! I love making my own granola so I can be sure only good quality ingredients are involved. I’ve been wanting to make a granola with cranberries and coconut chips. I think that combination would be out of this world! Thanks for sharing!

    I wonder what’s the difference betwee the regular granola and the gluten-free type in terms of taste. Does the gluten-free one taste better or is it just healthier? I think putting it with yogurt and milk will make it delicious as a snack or dessert.

    Looks so good!! I should do more with granola, but I love it on my yogurt and to just eat it out of the bag!

    That’s so funny – because I just couldn’t fit in the time for grocery shopping the past 3 days – busy! And, last night I was trying to figure out what to eat – I ended up with an oatmeal (homemade) bar, nuts and fruit – But… I this recipe would have worked for me – I had the ingredient – well, no cranberries, but I had dried cherries – Now this is a saver for me – thank you – 🙂

    Granola really is like the perfect snack for me. Throw in a splash of soy milk and I’m good to go.

    I love these types of food because they are so great to snack on and not gain a lot of empty calories from it. Also I see that rolled oats are in this recipe but this seems like a great thing to add to breakfast oatmeal just to give it a variety of flavors.

    So great to find a recipe that is gluten-free without a modification. It is so nice to find recipes that we can use for our gf friends that everyone else can also enjoy. This looks like a great collection of flavors and the presentation is perfect as I have a surplus of Mason Jars at the moment!

    I love granola so much and so do all my children. I have attempted to make it a couple of times and it never turns out so pretty. I will have to try this recipe, my husband would really like the crannberries in it.

    I purchased oats, and Chobani at my last visit to the store to make granola for parfaits in the morning. Ask me if I have made the granola. Go ahead.

    Love this! I eat granola every single day with some coconut Greek yogurt. The granola keeps me full and energized. I never thought to make some of my own! I need to give it a try as my favorite s honey and almonds. So good! I bet homemade taste so much better!

    I absolutely love granola. I think what makes me giddy about it is the versatility. I can make it healthy. Sweet and Savory. Or just can simply eat it with a spoon atop some ice cream. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    I have recently been diagnosed with pre-diabetes. I am looking for less carb-y foods to eat and more gluten free. I think this would be so yummy, for breakfast or just snacking.
