Since my daughter Emma got diagnosed with nut allergies almost a year ago, we have been very vigilant about avoiding nuts (except for almonds + peanuts which we have confirmed she is fine with)!
But while so many foods on the market claim they don’t contain nuts, they are sometimes processed on similar equipment and can have nut fragments or particles from cross-contamination. We definitely don’t want to take any risks when it comes to Emma’s allergies, so I decided to make homemade granola this past week and it turned out delicious! Here is the recipe!
Homemade Granola (gluten & nut free)
1.5 cups oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup raw pepitas
3 T maple sugar (or coconut sugar)
2 T raw honey
2 T maple syrup
1/8 tsp sea salt
Stir all the ingredients together, then pour onto a lined baking sheet in a thin, even layer. Bake on 350 for 15 minutes.
Let it completely cool (I waited 2 hours) then break up into granola pieces! Enjoy!!
