Ingredients For Gluten Free Granola Recipe
You have 5 simple ingredients coming together to make this gluten free granola…
- Gluten-free oats –But regular oats can be used, but of course this recipe wouldn’t be gluten free anymore.
- Maple syrup – a little sweetness, but honey would be a great substitution
- Coconut shreds – great texture! But you can swap these out for dried cranberries, other dried fruit or nuts.
- Brown sugar – A touch more sweetness, but I think coconut sugar might also work well here.
- Oil – I used sunflower oil, but any type of oil would do just fine. Try using coconut oil for a great healthy substitute!
Other Granola Mix-Ins
Of course, we kept this easy and with just 5 ingredients so it whips up quickly. But there are so many ways to customize your granola recipe. Here are just a few suggestions:
- Dried Fruit – Cranberries, raisins, cherries. Whatever dried fruit you’d like. However, be sure to add the dried fruit after it’s baked.
- Dried fruit will burn in the oven. So stir this to the granola after it’s baked.
- Nuts – Walnuts, pecans, almonds. Again whatever your heart fancies. No need to toast them before since they will toast nicely in the oven as the granola is baking. Just give them a rough chop.
- Seeds – Pumpkin or sunflower seeds would be a great healthy crunchy addition. Again stir these into the granola before baking.
- Chocolate chips– A little touch of chocolate? Yes please. Of course, allow your granola to cool before stirring in the chocolate chips so they don’t melt.
How Do I Store Granola?
Store: You can store your granola up to 2 weeks, at room temperature, in an airtight container.
Freeze: You can also freeze your granola in airtight container or bag (just be sure to push out any excess air) and store for 3 months.
