This gluten free salty & sweet granola is a healthy homemade option for breakfast. It is easy to make this simple cereal recipe. You don't need to buy granola if you can DIY at home!
I'm not a big fan of granola that is super sweet, especially if I'm going to eat it for breakfast. This recipe has the perfect combination of salty and sweet for me. The granola is great on its own or with yogurt and berries.
I like to make a double batch and store it for a few days in an airtight container. I also highly suggest a double batch if you aren't going to eat the granola with anything else. It's delicious and will go fast.
This salty & sweet granola is what I use with my Gluten Free Chia Pudding Breakfast Parfaits.
I like to buy my gluten free rolled oats from Thrive Market. They have been a game changer for me eating gluten free and living rural. Thrive Market has so many options that I can't get at my local grocery store!
Can you eat granola if you are gluten free?
The short answer is yes, but you will want to make sure it is certified gluten free or made from certified gluten free oats. Regular oats and oatmeal tend to be processed along with wheat flour, which means they may be contaminated with gluten. You can't just check the ingredient list, you need to make sure you check for the gluten free certification!
What is gluten free granola?
It may not have different ingredients from regular granola. The granola being gluten free is really about how the oats or oatmeal are being processed. Be sure the oats or oatmeal are certified gluten free.
If the oats or oatmeal are not certified gluten free there is a high chance they were processed with wheat flour.
Is gluten free granola less calories?
Unfortunately, no. Being gluten free doesn't have anything to do with how many calories are in the recipe. Gluten free oats don't contain less calories than any other oats.Print
This granola is the perfect combination of salty and sweet.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl combine the rolled oats, pecans, coconut flakes, cinnamon and sea salt. Add in the coconut oil, maple syrup and almond butter. Stir until all the oats are coated and the ingredients begin to clump together.
Pour mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and press the granola down lightly. Pressing the granola now will ensure you get some chunks when it cools.
Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before breaking apart.
Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
