I like simple snack recipes and this yummy Gluten Free Granola is definitely easy. It also only requires a few ingredients which are all gluten free.

This granola features almond flour and natural almond butter and is a sweet, salty snackable combination that will soon become a favourite.

GLUTEN FREE GRANOLA

I LOVE  to snack.

I would forgo dinner for a triple helping of snacks if I could get away with it but I’m a grown adult and know that’s wrong. Most of the time anyway. 😉

The good thing about this Gluten Free Granola is that you can snack on it OR make a nice light meal of it. Add some protein rich yogurt and a a handful of nutritious fiber packed berries and you are in business. It makes for a great quick breakfast or super fast light lunch if you are on the go.

HOW DO YOU MAKE GLUTEN FREE GRANOLA

It could not be simpler to make Gluten Free Granola. Using almond flour contributed to the binding of your ingredients and natural almond butter for that rich flavour. Natural means when you check the label the only ingredient should be the nut. In this case just almonds and that’s. Done.

I naturally sweeten this treat with pure maple syrup and swap out butter for healthy coconut oil.

I find ALL of those ingredients at my local Costco – aka the food bloggers common hangout.

The other main ingredient is old fashioned oats. There is a lot of grey area with whether or not oats are in fact gluten free. If your concern with gluten is of a serious nature definitely look for certified gluten free oats. It will be clearly labeled.

Getting those super crunchy clusters is the result of some patience on the end of the cook. And everyone in the house for that matter! The aroma of freshly baked goods can be hard to resist yet to achieve crisp clusters you must wait a good hour for them to form together. It is worth it.

Trust.
