A few weeks back I shared my favorite granola recipe on Instagram and over the past few weeks I’ve made a few really epic breakfasts with this granola. I’ll be keeping this post short and sweet so I can get straight to the point and share this absolutely delicious almond butter granola with you all! This granola is gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan, and takes 30 mins to whip up. I’ve become addicted to making homemade granola every Sunday to last me all week, and this combo is truly one of my favorites!

The first time I made this granola, it was as a topping for the beautiful dragon-fruit smoothie bowl pictured above. I knew I needed something slightly sweet and nutty to perfectly compliment a sweet banana-based bowl. I also topped this bowl with bee pollen and some kiwi berries for an extra delicious finish. I recommend adding granola to smoothie bowls once it’s cooled and is at room temperature so it doesn’t “sink” into the smoothie mixture and melt it.
Another simple breakfast idea is to put this granola on top of yogurt bowls. In the picture above, I didn’t use the optional coconut, but kept all the other ingredients the same. I like to make my granola the star of the show in yogurt bowls by keeping it simple with fresh fruit on top of some amazing full-fat yogurt. If you’re vegan, this combo goes just as well on coconut yogurt as well!
So if you’re not already convinced, this granola is full of flavor, simple to make, and a healthy alternative to all of those sugar-filled options at the grocery store. So what are you waiting for?! Go out and make it this weekend already!
In case you are looking for some of the tools & ingredients used in this recipe, I’ve put a few of my favorites for you here:
- I pretty much exclusively use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats for all my granola making needs!
- As you might have seen I called out using a glass baking dish in the recipe below because it can make a big difference on cooking time. If you’re in need, AmazonBasics are great and super affordable too!
