Gluten Free Strawberry Almond Granola | RuchiskitchenHave you ever been in a situation where the granola flavor that you and your family love-to-eat suddenly disappear from shelves? I faced this situation last week. I showed up at my regular grocery store to buy granola for the family, but it turned out that the organic granola that I usually buy was out of stock. Gluten Free Strawberry Almond Granola

Hmm… I went to look at the other selections of granola, and each one had unpronounced ingredients. So what’s next? 


I quickly rushed around the store to pick up the items I needed to make homemade granola.

The batch that I made today is made with the freshest and wholesome ingredients like –

  • gluten-free oats,
  • delectable pecans,
  • almonds,
  • freeze-dried strawberries,
  • cranberries,
  • and some other ingredients. 


Freeze-dried fruits have more nutrients in them. Though they’re dried, they are still packed with antioxidant and deliver the same deliciousness of the fresh fruit.  The best part about freeze-dried fruits is that they can be added directly to any recipe – from breakfast to dessert. Can’t find freeze-dried strawberries in your area? No worries, skip and continue with rest of the recipe.

One best thing about homemade granola is that you control what goes in there. No additives, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, or unpronounced ingredients. You choose what kind of dry nuts, candied fruits, chocolate, or peanut butter goes in it. Everything is fresh and homemade from start to finish. 

How to make Gluten Free Strawberry Almond Granola?

Toss all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Pour the heated maple-syrup mix and spread it on a baking tray. Maple syrup binds the oats mixture but if the granola feels dry, add a couple of tablespoons of water to bind the mixture. Bake for 25 minutes in a preheated oven.

My boys love to munch on big clusters of granola. For that, break the baked granola into significant clusters after it cools. Add the remaining strawberries and mix well to combine.

Granola makes an excellent munching snack. As I write this post, I have a bowl full of granola next to me. This crunchy granola is so addictive and dangerously delicious that it is impossible to stop at just a handful. 🙂 

For my kids, I use this homemade granola and whip them up into delightful granola yogurt cups. Creamy yogurt and crunchy granola complement each other perfectly. Yogurt coats the cluster of granola and fruits into a delicious mixture of flavors. So, what do you think happened next? Bowls were licked clean. My boys loved it!!

Other Variations!
Alter this recipe to your liking. Feel free to try other alternatives that are mentioned below. 
 - Gluten-free oats can be swapped with regular oats.
- I have used coconut oil. I think it adds a perfect nutty taste to granola. Not a coconut lover, substitute it for butter. 
- Take it to a whole new level by adding other ingredients like walnuts, raisins, cranberries or dried apricots.
