This 21 Day Fix Granola is the perfect make ahead breakfast or snack! Easy Homemade Granola that is gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar free unlike many of the prepackaged granola options in stores. This post contains affiliate links for products I’m obsessed with.
Confession # 14- I love a challenge. And taking something usually filled with sugar and making it healthy AND delicious, well that’s my kind of challenge.
This recipe comes by request…my first actual request for a “fixed” up recipe and I think I nailed it. But I’ll let you be the judge of that.
For those of you who have made my Krispie Baked Chicken recipe, I use the same brand Brown Rice Cereal for this recipe! Perfect if you already have an open box, which we always do in my house. Then I add some oats, sliced almonds, seeds and flax, and just a touch of natural sweetener before baking.
My kids love helping me making this granola, and they use it to top yogurt, banana ice cream, or alone as a snack. Leave the almonds out for a lunchbox safe option!
Lightly sweet, nice and crunchy, and totally customizable to your favorite ingredients, this Easy Homemade Granola is sure to be a new favorite! Enjoy!

Made this yesterday. It was really good. I added cranberries but I think it would be good without them too. Really liked the crunch of the brown rice cereal. FYI Your Amazon link to it says out of stock, but luckily I found some in my grocery store.
Ahh – thanks for that! And YAY! So happy this was a hit for you!
Is one serving one yellow container?
Hi Samantha! Container counts are in the recipe card – 1/2 YELLOW, 1/2 BLUE, 1/8-1/4 ORANGE, 1/2 TSP, 1 sweetener TSP per serving
What is the calorie count per serving ?
Hi! The nutrition info was just added to this post! Thanks for asking!
Love it! So tasty and easy to make
Yay! Thank you!
I’m curious to know the original 21 Day Fix granola recipe and how are you modified it. I can’t find the original. Thanks!
This is the recipe – took a non 21 day fix recipe and made it 21 Day Fix approved! Hope you like it!
Why is it only 1/2 yellow for 1/4 cup dry oats/cereal? I thought that would be a whole yellow. Please advise, thank you!
1 yellow = 1/2 cup
So, so very good! Even my partner likes it, and he’s not a fan of granola!! It was very yummy on yogurt!!!

Any idea how long this would last stored in the mason jar? This is definitely tempting to make.
I keep it for a week!
Can you tell me what brown rice cereal is? (I’m a newbie…but love my granola with yogurt so this sounded right up my alley.)
Yes!!! This is the one I use!! https://www.amazon.com/Erewhon-Crispy-Cereal-Gluten-Organic/dp/B00MFCC4J6/ref=pd_sbs_325_3?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00MFCC4J6&pd_rd_r=BDC3371M2W84ZQ9GRGSS&pd_rd_w=hpUBQ&pd_rd_wg=7Z7OD&refRID=BDC3371M2W84ZQ9GRGSS&th=1
Another good one that I tried that has organic coconut sugar instead of the brown rice syrup and also gluten free in from One Degree Organic Foods called Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps. I found it at Busch’s. https://www.amazon.com/One-Degree-Cereal-Crisp-Brown/dp/B00GO6VCME/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1526842455&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=one+degree+brown+rice+crisps&psc=1&smid=A3R2L7I9DH1SSW

Will this work without the brown rice cereal and just using oats?
I bet it will! The cereal just gives it extra crunch.
