Gluten-Free Granola

This is a great healthy snack to bring along to the park, or delicious on a bowl of yogurt for breakfast.  It’s also nice for those of use who have to be gluten-free and can’t handle even gluten-free oats (a problem for a good percentage of Celiacs).  Many of these products are available at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, but some I had to order through Azure Standard.

Gluten-Free Granola

  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup cashew pieces
  • 3 T flaxseed meal
  • 4 dates, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 T coconut oil

Put the quinoa flakes, coconut, sesame seeds, and pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet and toast at 350 for 5-7 minutes, stirring every few minutes.

Pour your toasted mixture, almonds, chia seeds, raisins, cashews, flax, and dates into a large mixing bowl.

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine peanut butter, honey, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, and coconut oil.  When melted, mix well and pour over your dry ingredients.

Spread the mixture out on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Store in an airtight container.
