This scrumptious, hand-crafted, plant-based, gluten-free granola celebrates the sunny flavors of fresh oranges; it’s also low in added sugars and oils, and filled with nutrition, compliments of whole grain oats, almonds, coconuts, raisins, spices, and citrus.





  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. For one orange, zest it using a zester or microplane, and juice it. Add the zest and juice to a small, microwaveable bowl.
  3. Add vegetable oil, almond butter, agave nectar, and vanilla to the bowl. Place in the microwave and heat for 2 minutes. Remove and stir to make a smooth mixture.
  4. Mix oats, almonds, coconut, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and allspice together in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Pour in orange-almond butter mixture and stir well to combine.
  6. For the remaining two oranges, peel them and slice them into small pieces. Stir into the granola mixture.
  7. Spread out granola mixture evenly into a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Place in oven.
  8. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring every five minutes, until golden brown.
  9. Remove, stir in raisins, and cool. Leave uncovered at room temperature for several hours to further dry oranges.
  10. Place granola in an airtight container and refrigerate (due to softness of oranges).
  11. Serve as desired.
  12. Makes about 7 cups (14 ½-cup servings)
