Gluten Free Coconut Cashew Granola

Gluten Free Coconut Cashew Granola

My granola making obsession continues with Gluten Free Coconut Cashew Granola…gluten free oats, cashews, toasted coconut…yum!!

Start by measuring out oats, coconut, and cashews into a mixing bowl.

In a small saucepan, heat coconut oil, honey, brown sugar, and a pinch of sea salt until it is combined.

Pour the mixture over the oats. Work quickly. This is a very sticky sauce and it takes quite a bit of stirring to coat all of the dry ingredients.

Spread the mixture on a parchment lined baking sheet. This will bake for about 25-30 minutes. I would recommend stirring this granola every 10 minutes, because the coconut flakes burn easily.

Let cool and enjoy!

Recipe

Gluten Free Coconut Cashew Granola

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups gluten free old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut (use an unsweetened variety)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cashews, chopped
  • pinch of sea salt

Directions

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine oats, coconut, and cashews.
  • In a small saucepan, combine coconut oil, honey, sugar, and sea salt. Heat until it is fully combined and the sugar is dissolved.

  • Spread the mixture into an even layer on the lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Stir at the 10 and 20 minute mark. At the 25 minute mark, stir and check. It may be done. If not, place back into the oven for a few more minutes.
