I am addicted to Purely Elizabeth’s Ancient Grains Granola. It’s GF and tastes like a heavenly cinnamon coffee cake! It also has a strong sweet-saltyness to it that I just love!
I have been wanting to try and make my own granola for a while now. My first few attempts were not good… I included coconut oil and the granola burned 🙁 But this time I used unsweetened applesauce and it turned out great. I’d like to get a food dehydrator and try making this granola with the coconut oil because the oil has so many great benefits.
2 cups gluten free raw oats
1 cup buckwheat groats
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. sea salt
1/4 cup coconut crystals
1/4 cup coconut nectar
3 TBS. peanut butter or almond butter
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
In a large bowl, mix all of your dry ingredients:
In a separate, smaller bowl, mix your wet ingredients…
Mex the wet ingredients with the dry and stir until fully combined… then spread the granola on a large baking sheet (I use parchment to save my sheets and prevent sticking).
Bake at 300˚ for 15-20 minutes, flipping over, then baking another 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool. Granola will harden up after it cools.
Store in a tupperware or glass container. The granola will stay good for up to 4 weeks.
