Call me weird, but I love finding the big crunchy clusters in any granola mix! And the same can be said of the one I make at home — Cashew Butter Gluten Free Granola.
This recipe was born when my husband and I decided to go on a credit card fast last year for a month. Since I tend to overbuy dry goods (especially if they’re on sale), my food shelves are pretty packed. And mixing together ingredients that I already have on hand became a no-brainer.
One thing I’ve learned about making your own homemade granola is this — if you want your granola to form clusters, you can’t JUST use gluten free oats.
I add in almond flour and ground flax (for added fiber and nutrition) that helps create crunchy clusters that remind me of my teenage favorite — Honey Bunches of Oats.
This is one of those recipes where you don’t have to feel guilty about the ingredients. One reason is that cashew butter naturally has a sweetness to it, so you don’t need to add a lot of additional sweeteners!
The truth is… while I love smoothies for breakfast, not everyone does.
Even I will dabble in a gluten free granola breakfast using some dairy free milk and fresh fruit. On cooler days, something like this might be more suiting!
Cashew Butter Gluten Free Granola
There’s a lot that you can do with my Cashew Butter Gluten Free Granola!
It’s not just relegated to breakfast.
You can certainly use it as a cereal substitute or to top a yogurt parfait!
It would also be a great addition to top a smoothie or acai bowl!
But you can also use it as a healthy snack or even an ice cream topping to give some added crunch to your favorite flavor.
