A small bag of store bought gluten free granola can run upwards of $7 to $8 per bag and last you all but two or three breakfasts. Being on a bit of a budget I’ve recently taken to making my own and found that a batch of homemade granola not only tastes far superior then the packaged stuff, it also costs less and will keep fresh in your pantry for weeks. This recipe can be doubled easily.


3 cups gluten free oats

1 cup chopped almonds or walnuts (or a mix of both)

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

3/4  teaspoon salt

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup coconut oil (or vegetable oil)

1/2 cup currants

1/2 cup golden raisins

1 tablespoon honey


Preheat oven to 250 degrees

Combine oats, nuts, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk brown sugar, maple syrup and oil until smooth. Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Pour mixture onto 2 lightly greased baking sheets and drizzle honey over top. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes stirring every 15 minutes so that even color is achieved. Let cool partially, then mix in raisins and currants. Store in airtight container(s) once fully cooled.
