Homemade Gluten-Free Granola

I have always loved granola and since going gluten-free I have not found a quality substitute. I bought some Bob's Red Mill rolled oats for another recipe and thought I would put the left overs to good use.

I found a good recipe online and slightly altered it to suit my tastes. I combined all the wet ingredients and then put them in the microwave for 10 seconds to loosen up the honey and the. You mix that with just the oats. Spread that mixture on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes. Take it out and mix it around, bake for an additional 10 minutes or less. Pull it out before it gets too crunchy though or else you'll have one large granola bar. Once cooled add dried fruits (I used cranberries and raisins) and nuts (I used walnuts because that's what I had on hand).

Store in airtight containers. I used it in yogurt and as cereal with milk! I made a double batch and it was gone in less than a day.

Possible add-ins:
Raisins
Cranberries
Walnuts
Almonds
Peanuts
M&M's
Coconut flakes
Chocolate chips
Yogurt covered anything
Cinnamon


Be creative and enjoy!
