This recipe is Gluten, and Dairy Free.
While this recipe is not Whole30 or Paleo this Maple Cinnamon Granola is still gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free and darn delicious! I wanted a healthier granola for David that wasn't filled with GMO's, refined sugars and processed junk. He absolutely loves this and I will be making this for him from now on! This one is made with steel cut oats but you can also use rolled oats. It also makes a huge batch! This Ball jar pictured is 64 ounces! enough to feed an entire family and then some!
3 cups organic steel cut oats or rolled oats
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup raw almond slivers
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
2 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp vanilla
