Why Gluten Free Granola?

To be honest, I came up with this recipe long before I was gluten free but have adapted it for my new dietary restrictions. As you may notice if you are gluten free, it’s often difficult to find gluten free snacks that are grab and go. Granted, this one you have to bake BUT after you bake it once it’ll provide 8 nice sized snacks! Eat one a day and you’re good for a week!

As I’ve written about before I had to become gluten free, dairy free, and soy free, among other foods I had to eliminate, several years ago and I was so glad once I realized how to adapt old recipes to work for me in my new lifestyle. That may sound like no big deal but I used to really be stuck in terms of recipes, I’m a very black and white, type A person who often has a hard time adapting. This was true when it came to recipes as well.

Now that I’m several years into all of this and more used to cooking from scratch, I’ve gotten much better at adapting recipes which is really helpful!

Additional Mix In Options

There are so many ways you can change up this recipe!

  • Dried Cranberries instead of Raisins
  • Not dairy free? Then you can use regular chocolate chips instead of dairy free ones!
  • Add shredded coconut
  • Add pecans, pepitas, or other nuts (I love shopping
