Eating a kind diet full of plant-based foods isn’t too hard after you’ve turned that mental switch. The trickiest meal for me is eating a healthy and diverse breakfast aka not opting for bread, vegan butter and jam every day. Like, it’s easy for me to prepare a lush vegan breakfast on the weekends, but during the week? Nope. No chance that I leave my comfy bed earlier than absolutely necessary. So, I really appreciate breakfast ideas that are simple and require minimal morning action, like overnight oats or yoghurt with fresh fruits and my gluten-free breakfast granola.
This granola contains no oats, compared to the most recipes that are floating around. Instead, it is packed with healthy sesame and pumpkin seeds and walnuts. A hint of cinnamon and some almond butter for taste. I sweetened the breakfast granola with maple syrup to add a touch of sweetness. If you prefer to not sweeten your breakfast you can leave the maple syrup out, of course.
This recipe for a vegan and gluten-free Breakfast Granola is:
- Plant-based, vegan
- Sweetened with maple syrup
- Contains no oats
- Contains walnuts and almond butter
This yummy gluten-free and vegan granola goes perfectly with your morning muesli. It's packed with all the good stuff: sesame, pumpkin seeds and walnuts. A little maple syrup sweetens things up.
- 100 g sesame seeds
- 120 g pumpkin seeds
- 150 g walnuts, roughly chopped
- 130 g maple syrup
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 0.5 tsp salt
- 80 g almond butter
Preheat your oven to 150 degrees C and line a baking tray with parchment. Now, the next part is incredibly simple. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and mix well using your hands.
Spread the mixture evenly on the parchment and bake for about 45 minutes. When the granola is out of the oven, break it apart using a spatula. Let it cool off completely before you store it in an airtight, sealed jar. Keeps about 1 to 2 weeks, in theory - but mine is always gone much sooner.

Hi there! I created Miss Walter’s to include loved ones with dietary restraints (chosen or not) at the dessert table. I share all my favourite vegan dessert recipes with you so that you can do the same. Because sharing food has the power to unite us, so let’s not get our diet in the way of eating and sharing delicious cakes.
