Orange Spice Granola with Black Mission Figs and Pistachios - Gluten-free, Vegan + Refined Sugar-free
This granola was something I quickly created with what I had on hand for our road trip to Chicago a couple of weeks ago. When I shared the photo on Instagram and Facebook, people were asking for the recipe like crazy! So, twist my arm, of course I made it again and this time I actually measured and paid attention to what I added in.

If you are gluten-free and can tolerate (and enjoy) oats, you have to make your own granola. It is so simple, so inexpensive and you can always make it just the way you want it. Plus, I really enjoy cleaning up the pantry and making use of all of the random leftover seeds, nuts and dried fruit by just dumping it all into a delicious and creative granola. The bonus is how incredible it makes the house smell, too. Obviously if you aren’t gluten-free, you can just make this with regular rolled oats!

This granola keeps quite well in sealed glass jars or you could also just store it in ziplock bags, etc. It’s great straight-up as cereal with your favorite non-dairy (or dairy) milk with some freshly sliced bananas, sprinkled over ice cream or yogurt, you could also use it as a topping or filling on a baked apple, on top of muffins, etc. Get creative  and do yourself a favor and make your own granola ASAP if you never have. You will be obsessed.

Pistachios and figs are some of my favorites, and they sound amazing in this granola!! When I get a craving for a bowl of cereal I always make my own granola and have it with almond milk too!! I need to try this one, I even have all the stuff in my pantry!!

Molasses is such an underrated sweetener! I literally will drink it out of the bottle because I love it so! I have a container of figs drying out in my fridge as we speak, and this looks like a fabulous way to use them! :-)

Yum, granola for a road trip is perfect! I haven’t made my own granola in ages. Last batch I made had lentils in it… gosh, that was good!

Hi Beth! In the instructions you mention “spices” as one of the dry ingredients, but I didn’t notice any spices in the ingredient list. So, I added some cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamon when I made it. Do you have any other suggestions?

Emily, thank you SO MUCH for calling this to my attention. How have I never noticed this before? I just updated the post with the appropriate spices. Thank you so much again!

Awesome thank you! I didn’t think about adding cloves, I’ll do that with the next batch. We love how the first batch came out!
