I shared these easy granola recipe on my Instagram stories a few days ago and promised to share the recipe! It’s seriously the easiest go-to breakfast for busy mornings! Dare I say easier than opening a cereal box? Ha! Definitely healthier as it has no refined sugar and isn’t processed at all! Anyway, keep reading to see my five minute no bake granola recipe.

5 Minute No Bake Granola Recipe


5 Minute No Bake Granola Recipe

This granola recipe is refined sugar free, dairy-free, nut-free, and can be gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats! It’s simple, as it requires just three main ingredients plus a few add-ins here and there if you like. But it’s foolproof, stores wonderfully, and best of all, kids love it!

I usually have all of these ingredients on hand, so when I’m running low on breakfast supplies/ideas, the granola saves me! Serve it with almond or oat milk like a cereal, or chill it and eat it by itself. It’s truly delicious!

Makes 1 mason jar full!


  • 1 cup sprouted rolled oats (I use One Degree)
  • 1.5 cups pitted medjool dates
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Optional: Flax, hemp, and chia seeds (I usually add all three)
  • Optional: sunflower seeds or nuts
  • Top with: fresh fruit and any nut butter


  1. Add all ingredients into the food processor.
  2. Pulse until dates are well broken up. It may take a minute or two if the dates aren’t super soft. You don’t want to purée them either. See the photo below for the texture you’ll want!
  3. Add your toppings, and then pour some almond milk or oat milk over it!
  4. Serve and enjoy!
  5. Store in a mason jar in the fridge for up to one week.



I hope you enjoy this easy and delicious five minute no bake granola recipe. Let me know if you try it out! Use the hashtag #livingincoloreats to share on Instagram so I can share too!
