Naked Gluten-Free Granola

dscn07761O.K., so I will start by telling you that I am LOVING Carol Fenster’s new book.  1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes has given me so many new ideas and I seem to be making something from this book a few times each week.  The latest achievement was her granola that made the house smell amazing.  It tastes great and I can’t wait to try to whip up her Chewy Granola Bars using the granola but more on that later.  For now, enjoy this one.

Naked Gluten-Free Granola

Dry ingredients:

3 cups gluten-free oats (I use Gifts of Nature)

1 cup sweetened coconut flakes

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt 


Liquid Ingredients:

1/3 cup honey

¼ cup very hot water

¼ cup canola oil

1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract

 Place a rack in the middle of the oven.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

 In a very large bowl, combine the liquid ingredients and stir until the honey is dissolved.  Pour over the dry ingredients and toss with a spatula until thoroughly combined.  (The mixture will be fairly wet.)  Place the granola on the prepared sheet and spread to a thin layer. 

 Bake 15 minutes and stir.  Bake another 15 minutes and stir again.  Continue baking in 10-minute increments until granola is browned to desired degree.  Cool the granola on the pan 20 minutes.  Refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
