I made a couple batches of this granola to make sure it was perfect, and it was nice to have on hand for quick breakfasts. It's perfectly sweetened and the clusters hold together great.
Nut Free and Gluten Free Granola
This delicious granola is nut free thanks to SunButter being used as the base. Sunflower seeds are used for a little texture, pumpkin seeds could also be used if desired. Oats are naturally gluten free, but can be cross contaminated so make sure to look for specially labeled gluten free oats. Everything else is naturally gluten free.
This granola uses no animal products keeping it vegan. Maple syrup is one of my favorite sweeteners and also vegan. Dried cranberries are used and optional, any dried fruit could be used here or it could be left out completely.
This granola comes together quickly, mixing together and then baking at a low temperature to get the perfect texture. It makes a pretty big batch meaning just a little effort to make and a big result. Great for making on the weekend and having on hand for the week.
This can be stored covered at room temperature and stays good for a couple weeks. It may stay good longer than that, but that's how long it lasted. Let cool fully then place in a container and cover. A large mason jar works great for this and makes pouring into a bowl easy.
