I eat yogurt for breakfast almost every morning, and my favorite topping is granola. Don’t get me wrong, some days I like to mix in a big spoonful of homemade cinnamon plum jam, or some chocolate chips and honey, but hands down nothing makes me happier or more satisfied than crunchy, toasty granola.
The thing about gluten-free granola is it’s really expensive, and it’s hard to find it without walnuts or pecans (which I can’t eat anymore after a partial anaphylactic reaction). But no worries, I just make my own and you can do, it’s really easy.
First, pick a set of whole grains you like. My favorite combination is oats (certified gluten-free), buckwheat, millet, and quinoa flakes, but you could also use sorghum, whole quinoa, or even glutinous grains like wheat berries if you are able to eat them. Next, pick some mix-ins: This recipes uses unsweetened coconut, dried blueberries, and sliced almonds but any small dried fruit and nut you prefer will work great. Lastly, pick a spice: Cinnamon, cardamom, or even curry if you want a more savory granola.
This granola is great sprinkled onto yogurt, ice cream, cold or hot cereal, or just eaten out of hand.
