GLUTEN FREE GRANOLA
I stopped eating gluten, a few years ago. These days there are tons of great gluten-free options out there. I am a true believer that when it comes to healthy food choices a homemade meal is a clear winner. In moderation, granola is a great way to start your day and this version contains a lot less sugar than the traditional granola you’ll find at your grocery store.
2 ½ cups whole oats
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup sliced almonds
½ cup chia seeds
½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup organic maple syrup
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract
A small pinch of JF Universal Salt
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Combine all the ingredients in a big bowl. You can use your hands to mix until you form small clusters.
Carefully distribute the mixture onto a large baking sheet and spread it into a single layer.
Place the sheet in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the granola is golden brown.
Give the sheet a careful shake a couple of times as the granola bakes.
Cool the granola on the sheet.
My favorite way to serve my homemade granola is with Greek yogurt, organic honey and strawberry preserves.
