I was at the grocery store recently, and I can’t believe how expensive granola is, the good stuff.  You know, the brands that don’t peddle sugary, processed, GMO products. And if you want gluten free, the prices are outrageous, $8 bucks for 12 ounces.

I’ve been making granola for my family for about three years now (thanks to an awesome mama, Lisa Rotelli). I recognized my daughter had food sensitivities (via my breast milk) within a few weeks after she was born- eczema. So, I went gluten free and switched to gluten free oats in my recipe.

My family loves this stuff so much, just as soon as we are out, I make more (I make a large quantity so I don’t have to make it often)!

DIY granola ingredients, including a variety of nuts, honey, and maple syrup, lay on a kitchen counter.
