Homemade Gluten Free Granola Fixate Recipe

granola1

After making this extremely delicious Homemade Gluten Free Granola Fixate Recipe, I can never go back to store bought again. I can hear you already thinking, no way this can’t be that good. Oh but it is! It is a very hearty and filling granola that tastes fantastic as a yogurt topping. I think it tastes good just right out the bowl. This recipe came from the Fixate Cookbook.

This is a gluten free and vegan recipe. I used the gluten free old fashioned rolled oats instead of Quinoa. I omitted the sea salt this time since I didn’t have any. It was really easy to make and I have a full bowl of granola. This recipe makes 30 servings of 2 tbsp so almost 2 cups worth. Just 2 tbsp shy of a full 2 cups. If you are watching carbs, then you will be pleased to know it has 12g for 2 tbsp and 2 grams of fiber with 5 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein.

INGREDIENTS:
2 1/2 cups of quinoa flakes or gluten free old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup sliced raw almonds
1/2 cup chopped raw walnuts
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened dried coconut
1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
1/3 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3 tbsp extra-virgin organic coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS
First you will Preheat the oven to 300° and you will line the cookie sheet with foil. You might want to add a light spray of Pam or cooking spray.
Then you will combine all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl and mix well. I used a bowl that has a lid and shook the bowl to mix. A lot more fun that way.
Next you will cook the maple syrup, coconut oil, and applesauce in a small saucepan over low heat and stir it for the entire cooking time of 4 to 5 minutes. You want to make sure the oil has melted out.
Then pour the syrup mixture over the dry oat/flake mixture stirring it until it’s all well coated and place the mixture onto the cookie sheet in a thin layer.
You will bake the granola mixture for 40 to 45 minutes and you will take it out the oven and stir the mixture about every 15 minutes. Bake the granola until it’s a light golden brown color and it will be crisp. Allow it cool and store it in a tupperware type container. Maybe you would prefer a glass mason jar.

Remember a serving size is 2 tablespoons.

Fiber Rich Muffins Recipe

glutenbranmuffins

I am trying to add in more fiber to my diet. Women should eat a minimum of 25 grams per day and men should eat at least 35 grams. Since most Americans don’t eat enough fiber, I was excited to find this delicious recipe. Each muffin has a 3 grams of fiber with 5 grams of protein. I used Hodgson Mill Quinoa and Flax Hot Cereal. The recipe is on the back of the box but I did tweak it a little bit.

INGREDIENTS:
1 Cup Hodgson Mill Quinoa and Flax Hot Cereal
1 Cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar (I used raw sugar)
1 cup carrots, shredded
1 cup apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup milk (I used skim)
2 eggs (or 4 egg whites)
1/4 cup oil (I used grapeseed oil)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:
Preheat your oven to 400°. Next put in 12 muffin cup paper liners or use a light spray of cooking spray so it doesn’t stick to the pan. Blend dry ingredients together first and mix until blended. Then add in wet ingredients and mix until blended. Then spoon into muffin cups.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Not sure if they are done, then stick a toothpick or butter knife in the middle of a muffin. If it comes out clean, then it’s done.
