Easy Granola Recipe

Whether you are Gluten Intolerant or have Celiac Disease, you understand the challenges of finding healthy breakfast options. The beauty of making your own Granola is you can make it in small batches and control all the ingredients. Also, it’s much more delicious and healthy than any packaged granola. This gluten-free granola is an example of a recipe in which you create a spectacular homemade recipe by switching the oats to GF and using all fresh, natural ingredients. Many packaged brands have ‘natural flavor’ and other digestive-disrupting ingredients. This also makes a great gift in a pretty jar. We love our Granolas here at the Delectable Blog.
