A staple in this house. Always have it for the ever hungry kiddos, hubby loves to snack on it at work, GREAT for nursing mamas, aka me. You can make this in bars or loose granola, however you want to.
2 cups gluten free Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free oats. ( MAKE SURE THEY ARE GLUTEN FREE!!!)
1/2 cup lightly crushed pecans
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup honey ( local is best but use what you have :) )
2 tsp vanilla
Mix oats, nuts, and grains in a bowl. Measure oil into cup, pour in, then the honey. ( Makes the honey slip right out!) Toss all together.
Pour into well greased medium baking dish and press down firmly, bake for 30 min on 300.
FOR LOOSE GRANOLA:
Pour onto baking sheet, lightly greased, stir and turn every ten min. Bake for 30 min on 300.
This is easy to switch around several ways!
Sub the almonds and pecans for peanuts, use peanut oil:)
Chocolate makes everything better. Add some vegan chocolate chips OR make a chocolate glaze and drizzle on top.
Sub the nuts for 1/2 cup crushed GF pretzels and 1/2 cup peanuts.
