Gluten Free Nutty Fruity Granola (option to make it dairy free also)

If like me you like a good granola and are bored with the shop bought ones that are gluten free and dairy free then this could well be for you.  Cereals can be so bland and cardboard like!  Sometimes breakfast needs a shake up too.  This is so tasty and i love it with coconut yogurt rather than milk and a handful of fruit to sometimes.  I also love eating a handful as a snack as well.  I love making my own as i know exactly whats in it too.  I know its not full of sugar and i can put my favourite fruit and nuts in as well.

You can make big batches of it too by multiply the quantities and keep it in a air tight container or just make slight alternations to the mixture by adding different nuts or fruit for or adding coconut or spices for a change so so you don’t get bored.  Have fun and see what you like. img_4027

You will need:

4 oz Butter or if you would like it to be dairy free use coconut oil) melted

4 oz coconut sugar

4 oz gluten free rolled oats

2 oz whole pecan nuts

2 oz almonds

2 oz flax seeds

1 oz pumpkin seeds

1 oz dried blueberries

1 oz cranberries

1oz gf self raising flour

3 tbsp maple syrup

pinch of cinnamon

 

Method:

Place all the ingredients in a bowl and stir around until they are all incorporated well.  Place on a baking tray on top of parchment paper and place in a preheated oven at 160′ fan assisted oven and 170′ non fan for 25 minutes until golden brown. You may want to give this a stir round to make sure this is evenly baked half way through.  Once this is cooled place in an airtight container and store for two weeks.

This is lovely served with milk, yogurt, dairy free yogurt, ice cream, fruit, honey, fruit etc img_4022or just on its own as a snack.
