Found some gluten-free oats at my moms and decided to take a try at a granola recipe. It actually came out pretty darn good!! Gluten free oats have no wheat in them but taste the same as regular oats. I love granola, this one came out more on the chewy side, next recipe will be a crunchy one.
Granola is great for cereal, top on yogurt, acai bowls and just a great healthy snack, that is if you make it your self. You know exactly whats in it. Store bought granola does contain a lot of sugar and sometimes fat per cup so making your own, you can control that.
Heres the recipe:
2 cups certified gluten-free oats
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup raisins-i left it out
1/4 cup dates-i left it out
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup organic natural crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup honey-i used organic agave nectar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
5 tablespoons of butter (or use coconut oil for better shelf life)-i used coconut oil
I actually made a double batch so just double everything.
Combine all the dry ingredients into a large bowl. In a small saucepan, combine the peanut butter, honey, butter (coconut oil), and vanilla. Once the peanut butter mixture is combined, mix it with the dry ingredients until the oat mixture is moistened. Press the granola in a shallow pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes at 300 degrees. *The granola will get crispier and crunchier as it cools.
Cool for at least 20 minutes and store in a sealed container.
enjoy and BE WELL.
