High fibre, gluten free, delicious granola

Here is my basic recipe, substitute to suit your own personal taste. Precise measurements are not needed.  I left out oats and other grains to make this batch gluten free.

Mix nuts and seeds in a large bowl.  Use roughly equally amounts.

  • Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • sunflower seeds
  • pecans, chopped
  • hazlenuts, crushed or chopped
  • walnuts
  • cashews
  • coconut flakes
Stir in a small amount of maple syrup (or agave or rice bran syrup).  You need approximately 1/4 cup to cover a large mixing bowl full of nuts.

Spread onto a baking tray covered in baking paper.  Bake in a moderate oven for approximately 10 minutes.  Stir and bake another 5 mins. Be careful if it easy to burn your mix, it should be lightly golden.  

Tip nut mix back into your mixing bowl.  Add chopped dried fruit:
  • dried figs, apricots, dates
  • sultanas
  • cranberries or other dried berries.
Allow to cool then store in an airtight jar.  Enjoy with fruit or yoghurt.
