Trail Mix Granola Bars

Healthy, homemade granola bars that are gluten free! Feel free to add whatever mixture of nuts you'd like!
Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time35 minutes
Total Time40 minutes
Course: Snack
Keyword: Gluten-Free, vegan
Servings: 12 people


  • 2 cups nuts cashews, almonds, pecans, walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dried coconut
  • 1/4 cup dired cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Add all of the nuts, seeds, dried fruit and salt to a mixing bowl and give it a stir.
  • In a separate small bowl, stir together the vanilla extract and maple syrup. Pour this on top of the nuts and stir everything together, until it's well coated.
  • Pour the mixture into the baking pan and use the back of a large spoon or spatula to flatten it into one layer.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, then cool for one hour in the pan.
  • Once the granola bars are fully cooled, slice them into bars. I slice then entire portion in half, then divide each half into six bars, for 12 total granola bars.


  • If your bars are still sticky an hour after cooling, you may need to bake them a few minutes longer next time to better caramelize the maple syrup.
