Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Blueberry Flax Granola. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

If you are gluten free, then use certified gluten free old fashioned oats otherwise, any type of rolled oats works great. I have not tested this recipe with quick oats.

Slivered almonds add the perfect amount of crunch while helping to control blood sugar and adding in tons of nutrients like Vitamin E, Magnesium and provides a great source of antioxidants.

Unsweetened shredded coconut adds the perfect amount of flavor.

A touch of salt to help balance out the flavors while giving a sweet and salty taste.

Tons of cinnamon warms this recipe up.

I have used sun butter in this recipe as well as tahini and almond butter. Any type of nut or seed butter will work great, just be sure to use one that is naturally runny.

Maple syrup is a unrefined sweetener that I love to use in my recipes, it sweetens this granola up without being too overpowering.

Wild dried blueberries or regular dried blueberries work best.

How To Make

ONE: In a large bowl mix together all of the ingredients until fully combined. Then fold in the dried blueberries.

TWO: Spread the oat mixture onto a baking sheet and spread thin.

THREE: Bake until golden brown. Allow to sit for a few minutes before breaking into clusters and storing in an airtight container.

Tips And Tricks

Use an all natural runny nut butter for best results. If using a thick nut butter, then you may need to add in a touch of oil like coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil.

Spread the oat mixture onto a baking sheet that’s lined with parchment paper to prevent it from sticking. Press it into the pan in one large section to create clusters after baking.

How To Serve And Store

Serve this Blueberry Flax Granola on top of a yogurt bowl, smoothie bowl or enjoy it with milk as cereal. I also like to grab it by the handful for a quick and healthy snack.

Store in an airtight container on the counter and enjoy within 2 weeks!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use fresh blueberries instead of dried?

No unfortunately it will not work the same and will be hard to keep the granola shelf staple.

Can I use another type of dried fruit?

Yes totally! Any dried fruit works great!

Am I able to make this nut free?

Yes, just swap out the almonds for a nut, seed or just remove all together. Then, use a tahini or oat butter.
