Granola (with Gluten-free Version)

April 3, 2018

 

 

Ingredients

 

4-½ c. quick or rolled oats (use gluten-free oats to make gluten-free granola)

1 c. flour (use gluten-free all-purpose flour to make gluten-free granola)

1 t. Baking soda (make sure it’s gluten-free if making gluten-free granola)

1 t. Vanilla 

⅔ c. softened butter

½ c. honey

⅓ c. brown sugar (pure maple syrup or coconut sugar)

1c. Extras - a combination of: dried cranberries, raisins, flax or chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkins seeds, nuts, dark chocolate chips, or shredded coconut

 

Directions

 

Mix and press into 2 cookie sheets.  If you want granola bars press into 1- 9x13” and 1 - 8x8” pan.  Bake @ 350 degrees for 15 - 20 min.  Don’t overbake.  They will be only slightly light brown on top.  Cool and cut.  These do crumble sometimes.  Adding more honey or butter may help next time.

I split the granola into two large glass jars.  In one jar, I add chocolate chips to make a healthy trail mix.  Shake well, and enjoy.  The other I leave plain.  I like to add it to plain yogurt for a quick snack.  It's great to have for breakfast or an evening snack with milk and topped with fresh blueberries. Either way, it's delicious.   Just watch out, it's addictive!
