Gluten Free Granola Your Way

In my quest to show gluten/dairy free love to my family and friends I gifted them with homemade gluten free granola this year.  Doesn’t everyone get a little tired of receiving plates of cookies and candies and everything sweet around the holidays?  If you said no, that’s your sugar high self talking.  I love to cook and bake foods that are allergen friendly to show people how tasty gluten/dairy free eating can be and to demonstrate that you don’t have to buy super-expensive and hard to find ingredients in order to do so.

The original granola recipe came from My Whole Food Life and I found this to be an easy, crunchy and full of flavor recipe.  I followed the recipe to a T for the first batch, which is what I always do and then the experimenting begins and I don’t think I ever truly go back to the original recipe on anything.  I have formatted the recipe below for you to tweak based upon your preferences and what you have in the pantry.
