Information About Gluten-Free Oats
Although oats are naturally gluten-free, growing, harvesting, and processing them can pose problems for individuals with celiac disease or gluten allergies. This is because oats are often cultivated near wheat, which can lead to cross-contamination. – The Gluten Free Austrian
It’s essential to seek out certified gluten-free oats. They are widely available in the United States with safe brands like Bob’s Mills. Bob’s Mills also makes non-GF Oats, so be careful to look for the GF Brand on the package. I mention this as I ordered GF Oats from a Grocery Delivery Service last week, and the delivery came with non-GF Oats. Not paying attention, I unknowingly ate them and had a bad stomach ache. I discovered later what had happened.

Instructions to Make Homemade Chunky Peanut Butter Granola
Step 1 – Gather Your Ingredients
Step 2 –
Heat Peanut Butter and Honey in a Saucepan on low heat until warm and well combined. Remove from heat.
Step 3 –
Combine Dry and Wet Ingredients in a Large Bowl. Mix thoroughly. I used my hands as the Oat Mixture was very stiff.
Step 4 –
Spread Granola Oat Mixture onto a lightly oiled Heavy Baking Tray. You can also place parchment paper on a baking tray. Press down firmly until Granola is an even layer. I used a spatula to flatten the Granola. This helps to ensure you will have nice clusters and chunks.
Step 5 –
Bake for 15 Minutes at 325 F. until Granola is light golden brown. Let cool completely before storing. Once it’s cool, you can break up the granola into chunks. Serve with your favorite milk or yogurt!
