Scrumptious Gluten Free Granola

April 6, 2017

About 5 years ago hubby & I took an adventurous 3 week road trip out west and we ended up in the magical land of Taos New Mexico! A series of synchronistic events led us to this beautiful bed and breakfast where their homemade granola was magically delicious! It was really that good!


I wish I could take some credit for this, but it all goes to my cute hubby Joshua! He was on a mission to make some gluten free granola that was parallel to the one we had in Taos, and I think he succeeded! 


Scrumptious Gluten Free Granola Recipe





4 cups of gluten-free oats


1/4 cup of organic extra virgin coconut oil


1/2 cup of organic maple syrup


1 organic apple


1 teaspoon organic cinnamon


1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt


1 cup  of organic raisins


1 cup of organic dried wild blueberries (or dried cranberries)


1 cup of crushed organic almonds (or walnuts)


1 cup of shredded organic coconut





*Heat the coconut oil until melted, then add the maple syrup.


*Add the cinnamon and salt to the oats and stir.


*Then mix the liquid (coconut oil and maple syrup) to the dry ingredients (cinnamon, salt and oats) in a bowl.


*Dice the apple into small pieces, and add to the mixture.


*Then spread it out onto parchment paper on a baking sheet.


*Bake at 350 degrees for 21 minutes, flipping the granola at the halfway point.  Let cool.


*While half the ingredients are in the oven baking, mix together the raisins, dried wild blueberries, almonds and shredded coconut and set aside.


*Once the granola is done baking and has cooled add in the raisins, dried wild blueberries, almonds and shredded coconut mixture and  Wallah - you have DELICIOUS, homemade granola!


*Eat it by the handful, or enjoy with coconut milk, or your favorite non-dairy milk!
