Plastic Free: Naked (Plain) Gluten Free Granola Recipe

One of our family’s basic foods is homemade gluten free granola. A perfect snack, breakfast cereal or yogurt addition. I’ve been making it for over 10 years. The recipe recently went under a Gluten Free renovation out of necessity but that doesn’t mean it still isn’t delicious!  You can make so many variations with this basic recipe. Add some cranberries, raisins, dried banana, cashews, almonds, pecans…you get the picture. Any taste buds can be delighted with this granola. Without store bought cereal, this granola is now a staple in our plastic free kitchen.
