Gluten Free Cherry Almond Granola

Granola is one of those staple items in my household. It was the first thing that I learned how to make when I found out about my food allergies. Time, good ingredients, and patience I think are some of the basic MUSTs to make good granola.

    I’ve made some pretty awesome granolas in the past, using coconut oil, honey or maple syrup and nut butters!! Warm them up together then toss to coat your granola ingredients, and bake like you do! It will add some protein and deliciousness to your granola! Hazelnut butter was my favourite. Sadly, I’m no longer able to make it. Since being diagnosed Celiac in 2013, I’m one of those who don’t tolerate oats at all, even GF oats. 🙁
