JustPoppin.comTM Easy, Gluten Free, Lower Glycemic Sorghum Granola

Try this yummy granola recipe from JustPoppin.com TM. We want to thank them for this delicious recipe.  This granola is really good and is a perfect snack. Try it with some yogurt and French Toast for breakfast too!


3           cups Popping Sorghum popped (and any un-popped or partial popped grains – “Old Maids”*)

1           cup gluten free old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)

1           cup sliced or rough chopped almonds

½           cup shredded coconut (preferably unsweetened)

¼           cup unsalted pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds) or shelled sunflower seeds

¼           cup PLUS 2 tablespoons agave nectar

2           tablespoons pure maple syrup

2           tablespoons canola oil

½           teaspoon kosher salt

1           cup dried fruit (such as cherries, apricots, dates, figs, cranberries, raisins or currants)


Heat oven to 350oF. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the oats, Popped Sorghum, almonds, coconut, pepitas/sunflower seeds with the agave nectar, maple syrup, oil, and salt.

Bake, tossing once, until golden and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes.

Add the dried fruit and toss to combine. Let cool.


TIP: The granola will keep for up to 3 weeks in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

* For this recipe, it is OK to include any sorghum grains that remained un-popped or partially popped from the popping process as they will toast in the oven and add crunch.

  1. WOW this looks great! I get kinda of tired of gluten free granola but this looks great with the popped sorghum. I have been so many popping sorghum recipes I should probably give that stuff a try! I don’t really care for corn, apparently I have a sensitivity to it, so I’m looking forward to giving it a try.

  2. Another breakfast recipe, yay! I have been looking for breakfast recipes recently since I got tired of eggs…keep ’em coming please!

  3. I LOVE this recipe! I love the pumpkin seeds especially! What a perfect autumn cereal to have. I am very excited to put this all together.

  4. I gave this a try today and it was REALLY good! I topped it on some Greek yogurt and it was fantastic and bagged some for the family to put in our lunch boxes as snacks. Two thumbs up! I am thinking about making this into a granola bar.

  5. Hey there Tina just wanted to say I’m a new reader of your blog and I really love it! The recipes all seem like stuff I’ll actually make and the product reviews are of products I would actually buy. Great stuff.
