Homemade Granola – Gluten & Sugar Free

1

Ok, this granola is the tastiest thing ever – I’m not being biased I promise! Seriously though, it’s so delicious with lots of amazing things like roasted nuts and seeds, coconut and crunchy gluten free oats.

It took me no time what so ever to make a big batch, and this is perfect if you need a healthy, tasty and filling breakfast for a busy week. All you do is prep it, pop it in to a sealed container and it’s ready to put in to a bowl with some milk and fruit or just to snack on for a sweet hit.

You can also get as creative as you like with your ingredients, including other varieties of nuts and seeds you prefer or dried fruit. This recipe if free from gluten, wheat and refined sugar (I also have mine with almond milk so you can make it dairy free too!)
