This grain free walnut granola is sweet, crunchy, and full of healthy fats & protein. It’s gluten free, vegan, and easy to make!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup almond slices
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or sweetener of choice (see note)
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees
  2. In a small bowl, combine all nuts and stir to mix.
  3. Stir in the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and chia seeds.
  4. Make sure all the nuts are evenly coated with the oil and syrup.
  5. Spread on a baking sheet lined with foil. I kept it in a fairly thick layer, so it would be a little clumpier. If you spread it out in a thinner layer, it won’t be as clumpy but it’ll cook a little faster.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 7 minutes.


For a lower carb/keto option, substitute monkfruit or stevia in place of the maple syrup.
