Accepting the challenges in creating a gluten free household

Crunchy Granola

I got this recipe from my friend, Elda, though she might not recognize it anymore.  I had to give up the wheat germ in the recipe and have adapted it to our own tastes. 

Mix 4 cups gluten free oats with 4-5 cups of whatever you like in granola.  I used the following:
1/4 – 1/2 cup ground flax
3/4 cup coconut
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup dried cranberries

Boil 1 cup honey
        1/2 cup oil
        1 Tbsp cinnamon

Pour honey mixture over dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Spread on 2 greased cookie sheets.  Bake at 325F for about 30 minutes, stirring often.  Watch closely; don’t allow it to become too dark.  Allow to cool undisturbed and then break into chunks.  Store in an airtight container.

    This recipe looks great and I will try it. For a change of pace, you might want to substitute dried peaches, diced, for the cranberries. There is something very bright and sunny about peaches in granola.

    I’ve also checked your other recipes, especially the cakes! This gf may become an adventure for me as well!

    Love,
    Priscilla
