For some strange reason I felt like baking some granola this week. It is strange because I have not made (or ate) granola since I stopped eating gluten a few years ago… I can not eat oats, not even the certified gluten free ones. I did not have quinoa or brown rice flakes at home, but I did have lentils! Hmmm… After a quick internet search, I learned that I am not as smart as I think I am, since someone else thought of this before I did. Ah well, great minds think a like!
My version is adapted from The Stone Soup blog and this post. Not only did the author, Jules, come up with this idea before I did, she also takes better food pictures than I do… Good thing photography in general (and food in particular) is still a new side hobby of mine, right?!
Perfect as yogurt topping with fresh fruit, and I plan on sprinkling some on top of vanilla & Cinnamon mashed yams in the next few days.
Here are some other flavor combinations for you to play with! Be sure to use unsweetened dried fruit.
- Dried apple pieces & cinnamon
- Dried mango pieces and macadamia nuts
- Dried cherries and pistachios
