Crunchy, nutty gluten free granola

Most shop-bought gluten free granola is grossly  expensive.  I still envy those who can eat the ordinary kind for almost half the price. But it amazes me just how simple it is to make. Get more bang for your buck and try it yourselves!
Most shop-bought gluten free granola is grossly expensive. I still envy those who can eat the ordinary kind for almost half the price. But a few months ago, a friend suggested that I try making my own, the ultimate perk being that I get to add whichever additional ingredients I like. So I decided to put together a nutty combination of flax seeds, pumpkin seeds and hazelnuts, using golden syrup as a FODMAP friendly alternative to honey.

It amazes me just how simple it is to make. Get more bang for your buck and try it yourselves!

Makes approximately 8 portions

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

300g gluten free rolled oats

2 tbsp. corn oil

1 heaped tbsp. golden syrup

3 tbsp. maple syrup

20g flax seeds

20g pumpkin seeds

30g roughly chopped hazelnuts

1 tsp. vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract

Equipment:

Large flat baking tray

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC fan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the gluten free oats with the corn oil, golden syrup and maple syrup. Ensure that all the oats are well combined.
  2. Add all the seeds and nuts along with the vanilla.
  3. Line the flat baking tray with parchment paper and evenly spread out the mixture.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes before taking out the tray from the oven and flipping over the granola to bake evenly on the other side. Bake again for an additional 10 minutes until the granola is golden brown.
  5. Leave the granola to cool aside for half an hour before breaking into small chunks. Store in an air tight container to keep fresh.
