The flavors of summer and fall combine perfectly in this easy, gluten-free strawberry apple granola! It’s the perfect breakfast or late-night snack. It’s egg-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free as well!
A family favorite.
Even before going gluten-free, granola was my family’s favorite cereal. Not that we ever bought it, though. Granola is notoriously expensive – even when it’s not gluten-free. And with celiac in the house, there was no buying just any ol’ granola.
Thankfully, there’s no need to spend an arm and a leg for certified gluten-free granola! It’s easy to make at home. And not only is it easy, it’s easy to make with a variety of flavors!
Strawberry Apple Granola.
This strawberry apple granola is so, so yummy, and it’s a perfect way to use up strawberries that are getting mushy. If you don’t have strawberries on hand, you can also use freeze-dried ones. I’ve done that and it works just fine.
I also like millet flour in this granola, but I understand that’s not something most people usually have on hand. In fact, I don’t even usually have it on hand, but I do usually have whole millet in my pantry, so I just grind that up in my trust Blendtec and voila! Millet flour.
Anyway, if you don’t even have whole millet on hand, you can just use buckwheat or even just more sorghum flour.

Strawberry Apple Granola
Free from gluten, eggs, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 6 c. gluten-free oats
- 3/4 c. millet flour or buckwheat flour
- 3/4 c. sorghum flour
- 1 c. unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/3 c. flax meal
- 1/2 c. diced apple (I used a small Pink Lady)
- 1 c. diced strawberries
- 1/2 c. water
- 1/2 c. olive or coconut oil
- 1/2 c. applesauce
- 3/4 c. honey
- 1 t. vanilla extract (I like to make my own)
- 1 t. sea salt
Preheat oven to 250 and lightly grease two cookie sheets.
In large bowl, combine oats, flours, coconut, and flax. Mix well and stir in diced fruit.
In small bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Pour wet ingredients over dry ones and mix well until no dry spots remain.
Divide between the two cookie sheets and spread out evenly.
Bake for about 50 minutes, or until golden-browned.
If you just have one cookie sheet, just bake the granola in two batches.
Baking it for 50 minutes makes a slightly chewy granola, which my family likes. If you and yours like it crunchy, bake it for about 10 minutes longer.
