Habit Forming Granola
Granola has a permanent place in my pantry. We Eat it with yogurt, cereal, baked goods and other recipes, savory salads, cottage cheese, fruit and let's not forget out of hand! Most granola found in store shelves is loaded with (refined) sugar, something I like to keep to a minimum in my home and many are loaded with unhealthy fats. My mission was to develop a gluten free granola loaded with nutrition and void of refined sugar.
This recipe draws only on dark maple syrup for sweetness, is loaded with nuts and seeds and baked with a thin coating of olive oil. Each recipe makes a large batch, but this requentky doesn't make it to the end of the week before I need to make more!
You will need:
(choose Organic where you are able)
3 cups gf oats
1 c raw pumpkin seeds
1 c raw sunflower seeds
1 1/2 c raw chopped pecans

1/2 c olive oil
Flaky sea salt

This recipe is one my family can't live without. You'll find this very easy to make and you may never purchase store-bought again. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
