An easy gluten free breakfast idea

This gluten free peanut butter granola actually came from sorting through lots of ‘bits’ of leftover baking materials that I wasn’t sure what to do with.

 

I seem to have a glut of gluten free oats and suddenly I realised this would be the perfect base to make my own gluten free granola recipe.

It only takes about five minutes to mix everything together – then simply bake for 20-25 minutes and your granola is done!

I like mine nice and clumpy, and you can eat it hot or cold, with yoghurt or milk – or whatever combination takes your fancy!

How do I make gluten free granola?

If you want to make this gluten free granola recipe, then you’ll just need a few basic ingredients from your cupboards.

The ingredients you’ll need are:

  • 300g gluten free oats
  • 100g crunchy peanut butter
  • 85ml maple syrup
  • 60g coconut oil
  • 100g raisins
  • 50g pecan nuts

The beauty of this gluten free granola recipe is that so many of these ingredients can be switched up so you can have a different recipe each time!

If you cannot tolerate gluten free oats you could use rice flakes instead, and the peanut butter can be swapped for any nut butter of your choosing.

Feel free to change the maple syrup up for honey, and you can add any dried fruits or nuts of your choice instead of raisins and pecan nuts.

Step-by-step guide to making gluten free granola

Stir it all up until it’s well mixed together, and that’s literally as simple as it gets!

Don’t worry if there are a few clumps, as they will bake into super delicious granola clusters!

Once mixed, just pour the mixture between the two baking sheets and spread it out in an even layer.

Don’t worry if the granola isn’t spread out loads – though you don’t want to ‘pack’ it all together or you’ll end up with more of a flapjack!

Bake it for 20-25 minutes and then remove it from the oven – your gluten free granola is done and ready to eat!

You can have a bit hot from the oven but I find it forms better clumps as it cools.

Make sure you cool it completely before storing it, otherwise it might go a bit soggy!
