Friendly granola

(Gluten-free, dairy-free, no refined sugar)

Servings: 12
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free butter or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 4 cups rolled gluten-free oats
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit
  1. Melt the butter and honey together in a pot, over low heat, or in the microwave, stirring occasionally. Take off heat once melted.
  2. Add butter and honey mixture to nuts and oats and make sure everything is coated.
  3. Spread out thinly over a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in oven at 160C for 15 mins. Remove from oven, stir, spread out thinly again and return to oven for another 15 mins. The last 15 mins can go very quickly and sometimes the granola can brown pretty fast, so keep your eye on the granola during the second half. You may need to stir it a few more times before the 15 mins is up.
  4. The granola will be soft when you remove it from the oven. Let it sit and cool for about 30 mins, then add the dried fruit.
  5. When cooled, this granola forms clumps which may need to be broken up with a spoon.
