I am addicted to granola and yoghurt with a smattering of fruit for breakfast. I have tried many brands of gluten free granola, some of which are lovely and some had a strange vegetable oil after taste, all of which are quite expensive. With this in mind I thought how hard can it be to make my own.
Well, it turns out it’s so easy and now I make it all the time.
You will need:
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 125ml maple syrup
- 2 tbsp honey ( or date syrup )
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 300g rolled oats (pure gluten free)
- 50g sunflower seeds
- 4 tbsp sesame seeds or flaxseeds
- 50g pumpkin seeds
- 100g flaked almond
- 100g dried cranberries
- 50g flaked coconut
- 2 baking trays or one large one
Heat oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2.
When done, remove from oven and scrape granola onto a clean flat tray to cool. You can store the granola in a large airtight container, it will last for up to a month – not in my house though!
