Healthy Nut Free Granola Recipe
We like to purchase 25 lb bulk bags of gluten free oats from AmarilloEatsOrganic.com to make our own allergen free granola!
We get to choose what kind of sweeteners if any and we can make it allergen free. We store them in the pantry for up to 6 months!
2 cups rolled oats
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 300°F / 148°C. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together your oats, cinnamon, salt, and any additional spices or flavors. In a seperate bowl (I just use my measuring cup to make fewer dishes to wash) combine your brown sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla. Pour the wet into the dry and mix well.
Pour the granola mixture onto your prepared baking sheet. Flatten with the back of the spoon till you have one even layer.
Bake for 20 minutes in the oven, flipping the granola over and flattening with a spoon again half way through baking. Remove from the oven when you see a golden color begin to develop on your granola. Don't over bake this!
Store in airtight container up to 6 months (mine gets eaten much faster lol)
