Make a batch of this Gluten Free Granola so you have plenty to last the week. It works well for breakfast or even as a snack with some coconut yoghurt.
What I really love about granola is that you can make it on the weekend and have it for your breakfast during the week. So if you are short on time in the mornings, then I suggest making up a batch on the weekend!
You can also use this granola to make desserts like this Chia Berry Parfait like this chocolate granola
Plus you can experiment with flavours to change up the granola like this chocolate granola
Gluten free – this granola suitable for anyone who is gluten free
Easy to make – 10 minutes preparation time and 35 minutes cook time.
Healthy wholefood ingredients – which are easy to find at any supermarket, health food shop, market or online store.
- Raw Nuts – I used a mixture of cashews, macadamias, pecans and walnuts. But any raw nut will work well.
- Dried Fruit – I used cranberries and apricots in this granola. Dried fruit is an optional extra, so if you want to cut down on the sugars then you can omit.
- Seeds – I used pepitas and sunflower seeds.
- Shredded organic coconut
- Coconut oil
- Maple syrup or raw honey or rice malt syrup – reduce amount if you are watching your sugars.
- Vanilla extract
Nuts – you can substitute the nuts with any raw nuts you have on hand. Just keep the quantities the same.
Dried Fruit – you can substitute the cranberries and apricots with any dried fruit you have on hand. Just keep the quantities the same.
Sweetener – You can use rice malt syrup or honey instead of maple syrup.
MY TOP TIP
When chopping the nuts in your blender or food processor, I suggest adding a cup at a time, otherwise you may end up with more of a nut meal.
You can serve with coconut yoghurt and some berries. Or with your favourite non dairy milk. Alternatively, it is super tasty on its own.
I would keep stored in an air-tight container for up to two weeks in your pantry and up to 1 month in your refrigerator.
