These are 9 of the best ever Clean Eating Granola Recipes for an easy make-ahead breakfast. Clean wholesome ingredients make for a clean yummy breakfast. Homemade Granola can make a very healthy breakfast for practically anyone.
Granola is really easy to make and most granola recipes are baked in the oven, which means you don’t need any special equipment. You can make a really big batch and store it in your cupboard and have it for breakfast, or any other time for that matter. That way you only need to make it once in a while which I think is really nice.
Oats are the main ingredient in most of these. What you need to know is that in order for granola to be Clean Eating, the oats have to be either old-fashioned or steel cut – quick oats don’t belong in a Clean kitchen. Steel cut oats don’t work very well for homemade granola so for all of these recipes use old fashioned oats if it doesn’t specify that.
These Clean Eating Granola Recipes sound so good to me, they have a lot of my favorite foods like fruit, seeds, and nuts. You have to check all these out! Please let me know which are your favorite by commenting below.

1. Cardamom Coconut Cranberry Granola – Crave The Good
Oats – Shredded Coconut – Roasted Almonds – Dried Cranberries – Coconut Oil – Honey
It is so simple to make homemade granola. You have got to try it. My grandmother used to make homemade granola so it isn’t like a new thing. Kids love it and will snack on it all day if you let them. I like to eat it plain, on yogurt, on whipped coconut milk, or eat it with milk like cereal.
2. Sugar-Free, Oil-Free Banana Granola – Breakfast Drama Queen
Flaxseed Meal – Banana – Oats – Shredded Coconut – Walnuts or Pecans
This is nice chewy banana granola which is completely sugar-free, oil-free and vegan. It tastes sort of like banana bread but in a bowl or maybe banana oatmeal cookies. It’s a little chewier than most granola and not as crunchy, which is the way I like it. If you added some almond butter you would end up with more crunchy granola that has more clusters or chunks.
3. Maple Almond Crunch Granola – The Seasoned Mom
Old Fashioned Oats – Wheat Germ – Raw Sunflower Seeds – Pumpkin Seeds – Sesame Seeds – Maple Syrup – Coconut Oil – Slivered Almonds – Chopped Dates
This is a perfect breakfast or snack that you can make ahead. Then you can keep it on hand when hunger strikes for a quick meal. You can grab a handful or sprinkle it on yogurt. I think you’ll like enough that will become a staple around your house.
4. Chocolate Quinoa Granola – I Food Real
Old Fashioned Oats – Quinoa – Cacao Powder – Ground Flax Seed – Chocolate Chips – Egg – Maple Syrup – Coconut Oil
This is basically oats mixed with uncooked quinoa and liquids. Getting the right proportions of wet and dry ingredients is the tricky part. That’s because the oats bake differently than the quinoa. So follow the recipe closely. It’s very versatile and super simple to make. You can use pretty much any kind of chocolate you want such as chips, chunks or a bar.
5. How to Make Your Own Granola – Eat Well 101

This granola is packed with nutrients and fiber. This is basically a formula instead of a recipe that potentially has hundreds of variations. Toward the end of making this granola, you can add pretty much anything you would like. I think dried fruit and nuts would be really good. It’s kind of fun to create your own breakfast granola.
6. Almond Joy Granola – The Lemon Bowl
Oats – Slice Almonds – Honey – Coconut Oil – Cocoa Powder – Shredded Coconut – Chocolate Chips
Coconut, chocolate, and almonds are sweetened lightly with honey to create this addictive homemade healthy granola. It could be eaten for breakfast plain or with milk on it or just plain. Keep it in a glass jar with a lid on it just for fun but it also preserves it for a long time plus it’s really cute.
7. Pumpkin Spice Granola – Gimme Some Oven
Old Fashioned Oats – Pecans – Pumpkin Seeds – Coconut Oil – Maple Syrup – Pumpkin Puree – Pumpkin Pie Spice – Vanilla – Real Salt

8. Coconut Granola – From Calculus to Cupcakes
Coconut Oil – Honey – Cinnamon – Sliced Almonds – Pumpkin Seeds – Flaked Coconut – Old Fashioned Oats
Homemade granola is so easy to make and it tastes so so much better than what you buy in the store. When you make your own you have control over how much sugar and fat you put in it. I think this has the perfect amount of sweetness and just enough fat to make it golden crisp but it has less fat than most homemade granola. I also think it has the perfect amount of coconut, not too strong of a flavor but enough that I can taste it because I love the flavor of coconut.
9. Sweet Pumpkin Seed Protein Granola – I Love Vegan
Old Fashioned Oats – Whole Wheat Flour – Pumpkin Seeds – Chia Seeds – Flake Coconut – Buckwheat Grouts – Red Lentils – Maple Syrup – Palm Sugar – Coconut Oil

You can add your favorite items like raisins or nuts or leave out the ones you don’t like. That’s perfect especially when you have kids eating it.
