Right now, I eat grain free and gluten free. I just feel better without grains and gluten in my system. On many levels, it’s not a huge deal. Though I do miss some familiar foods, like cereal. I love cereal. It’s my comfort food. It’s one of my favorite snacks. And it’s not easy finding a a cereal that’s gluten free AND grain free.
Last week my friend passed on a recipe for gluten free + grain free granola. I made a few adjustments to the recipe…and all I can say is Y.U.M! Now I can have cereal again! While I try some recipes that are a bust, this one is a winner and very worth sharing.
And it’s easy to make as well.
Here are the main ingredients….
1 cup chopped pecans + 1 cup sliced almonds + 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds + 1/8 cup chia seeds + 1/8 cup flax seeds
Chop pecans and almonds in a cuisinart or with a knife.
Mix all of the ingredients together. Stir in 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil and 3 tablespoons of agave.
Bake at 325 degrees on a rimmed pan for 12 to 14 minutes.
So simple to make. And tastes amazing.
You can eat it by itself. Pour milk on top and enjoy it as cereal. Mix it into your favorite yogurt. Or maybe add cranberries or other dried fruits for additional flavor. The possibilities are endless!
Let me know if you decide to make some! I’d love to hear how it turns out.
