I love having granola and greek yoghurt for breakfast, but the lack of gluten-free oats when we lived in Chile made this a little difficult at times.  When I traveled to the US, I always bought a couple of kg of gluten-free oats, so I had lots of fun making all the recipes I haven’t been able to for a long time … and this is one of those.

The combination of peanut butter, honey, cinnamon and vanilla gives the granola a nice sweetness, but not too much.  Toasting the oats in the oven, just a little bit, gives the crunch that I’m looking for.  I love this recipe – just wish I could have it more frequently!
