Homemade Granola Recipe | Essential Ingredients
This gluten-free granola recipe relies on a handful of simple ingredients to create a delicious and nutritious snack.
- Certified Gluten-Free Oats: The heart of this recipe, oats provide a hearty and wholesome base. You can use a combination of quick oats, or rolled oats (our preference). However, steel cut oats are not a great option for this recipe.
- Peanut Butter: Peanut butter not only adds rich, nutty flavor but also contributes healthy fats and acts as a binding agent, giving the granola its delightful chewiness.
- Honey: Honey serves as a natural sweetener, adding a touch of sweetness to the granola while helping to create those cookie-like clusters when baked.
- Vanilla Extract (Optional): If you choose to include it, vanilla extract enhances the overall flavor profile, imparting a warm and inviting aroma to your granola. It not necessary, but vanilla is always a good idea 🙂
By combining these simple ingredients, you’ll create a gluten-free granola recipe that’s not only delicious but also packed with healthy fats and the satisfying chewy texture of oats. Perfect for a quick and nutritious snack or a hearty breakfast option.
