I was so sick of paying $8 at the grocery store for a cup of "healthier" granola. Since going gluten free and eliminating processed refined sugars, I seriously could not afford to buy the gluten free no sugar granola in the store.
Do you think granola is difficult to make? Well, once the recipe is mastered, the process is super simple. This homemade #glutenfree and #lowsugar granola is a perfect staple because it can double as cereal and a handy snack.
My dad and I have been working on perfecting this granola recipe for a few weeks and it's finally here - I do have to give him most credit here, he he!
Yummy flavor and nice chewy clusters sweetened with just the right amount of coconut sugar.
This recipe is so versatile if you just follow the framework. Allergic to nuts? Substitute the nuts for seeds or even more dried fruit – virtually whatever your heart desires.
This granola pairs perfectly over a nice bowl of cashew yogurt or in my quick and easy overnight oat recipe
