Gluten Free Maple Pecan Granola with Cranberries

If you love granola, try this homemade gluten free maple pecan granola. This recipe is easy and perfect to make at home in 20 minutes!

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 this 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!
