Since going gluten free I have tried box after box of gluten free granolas, only to taste yet another cereal that tastes like cardboard. I MISS good granola! My mom used to make heavenly homemade granola. I also loved a really good boxed granola. I have always loved it as a snack or my favorite, as a topping on vanilla ice cream!
This recipe, The Best Granola uses GF oats, cinnamon, chopped almonds, shredded coconut, honey, brown sugar and coconut oil to make a scrumptious recipe that even has me snacking on it as I write this post. I use Topical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil. Coconut oil can also be found in health food stores.When melting coconut oil, it’s best to melt in a glass measuring cup placed in a pan of hot water on the stove. It’s best not to use the microwave.
This recipe is simple, stirs up quickly, and will give you all the granola pleasure you’ll ever want!
