I love this easy grain-free granola recipe because I can keep all of the ingredients in my pantry and whip it up in less than an hour.
Just mix together a few whole ingredients and roast at a low temperature for 30 minutes and you will have a tasty, low sugar granola!

Let’s make some Maple Cinnamon Grain-Free Granola!
Step 1: Preheat Oven and Mix Dry Ingredients
First, preheat the oven to 300F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, in a large mixing bowl, combine almonds, sunflower seeds, pecans, coconut, salt, and cinnamon. Mix together until an even mixture remains.
Step 2: Stir in Wet Ingredients and Spread on Baking Sheet
Mix the granola thoroughly. Then, spread onto the baking sheet in an even layer. Do not leave spaces on the sheet, the even layer is how you make crumbles.
Step 3: Bake, Cool and Crumble
Next, bake the granola at 300F for 30 minutes. Then, allow the granola to cool fully before crumbling into large chunks. Enjoy on yogurt or as a cereal with milk or just on its own as a snack!
Step 4: Enjoy!
How should I store this granola?
Cool the granola completely and then store at room temperature on the counter in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
