Info on 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.

Ingredient Notes

How To Make Homemade Chunky Gluten-Free Granola

Step 1 – Gather Your Ingredients

Ingredients for Gluten-Free Granola
Gluten Free Oatmeal, Vanilla, Honey, Peanut Butter, Peanut Powder, Salt

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 Ingredients and Wet Ingredients in a Large Mixing Bowl. Mix thoroughly. I used my hands as the Oat Mixture was very stiff.

Step 4

Spread the Peanut Butter Mixture into an even layer onto a lightly oiled Heavy Baking Tray. You can also place parchment paper on a baking tray. Press down firmly until the 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. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let it cool completely before storing. Once it’s cool, you can break up the granola into chunks. Serve with your favorite milk or yogurt!

Storage

Please bring it to room temperature and store it in an airtight container. I store ours in large baggies in the freezer.

FAQS About Homemade Peanut Butter Granola Recipe

Yes! Ensure your oats are certified gluten-free, and use gluten-free peanut butter and peanut butter powder. Most celiac and gluten-sensitive individuals can eat certified gluten-free oats.

Can I use Crunchy Peanut Butter in this gluten-free granola recipe?

Yes! Just make sure the type of peanut butter is creamy, as it will combine much better.

How do you make Oat-Free Granola?

Although I love honey as it’s sticky, Maple Syrup or Agave Also works well!
