Nutty Gluten-Free Granola

Nutty Gluten-Free Granola

I am an absolute granola fiend. I find myself with a new bag of granola, and eat half of it in 10 minutes no problem. Except, that is a problem…store-bought granola can be expensive! Something we often forget is how simple granola is to make!! I whipped up this quick and easy Nutty Granola with ingredients I already had in my kitchen. No point in buying store-bought, when you can make your own! I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups gluten-free rolled oats (I buy mine at Trader Joe’s)

  • 1/2 cup nut butter (I like almond, cashew, peanut or sunflower)

  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

  • 3-4 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons flax seed or hemp seeds

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Optional to add after baking: dried fruit (raisins, mango, pineapple), chocolate chips/chunks

Preparation:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325F.

  2. In a bowl, combine your dry ingredients (oats, coconut, chia seeds, cinnamon, pecan pieces, salt).

  3. To that bowl, add wet ingredients (almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup/honey, vanilla). Mix thoroughly.

  4. Once oven is preheated, place granola mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a spatula, flatten ingredients into one large mass. Use a small enough baking sheet that there are no spaces between the granola.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden

  6. Allow granola to rest until fully cooled before breaking apart. This should give you some large chunks!

  7. Enjoy!
