Gluten Free & Vegan
One of the snacks my husband loves the most is granola. When we both went gluten free a few years ago, he tried several brands of gluten free granola that were lower in sugar and ended up LOVING the Kind Brand Granola - his favorite being the honey oat with toasted coconut. The problem is that these types of high quality granola are like $5.99-$8.99 for one small bag that only gives you about 4-5 servings. You can relate, right?!
So I decided to save us some money and create my own homemade version to keep the hubby happy! I can safely tell you that this recipe kicks the KIND Granola's booty in the taste department. It also has a little less sugar and 8 less grams of carbohydrates compared to the Kind Brand. My version is higher in fat, but contains all healthy fats from the almonds, almond butter, and coconut oil.
This granola makes a great breakfast or snack when combined with Greek yogurt or your favorite milk. Or grab a raw handful when you are on the go - running errands, sitting at the kids sports games, making tracks down the slopes, or hitting the trail.
