Healthy Grain Free Granola. Natural and gluten free.

I have a huge obsession with plain yoghurt and homemade granola. Admitted.

My morning just isn’t complete without yoghurt. And what do you think my afternoon snack often consists of? You’re right! Yoghurt. Yum, yum, yum.

Actually I’m eating a big bowl of yoghurt and granola with raspberries right now (: Oh, how I love it when the first blog in school os cancelled. Then I’ll have time for really enjoying my yoghurt and write my blog.

I brought home some stuff from my trip to the US. My host family were the kindest one ever. They even bought me some of the things I’d planned to buy. Like chia seeds. They are just so hard to get in Denmark. But in America you just have to find a supermarket and you are about sure you can buy chia seeds.


You can use chia seeds in everything and they are incredibly healthy. Some top their yoghurt with chia seeds. I’ve taken it a step further and added them to my granola. Aren’t they pretty?

I really like the idea about grain free stuff. I read about it everywhere (aka Pinterest (; ). It should be really healthy and god for your blood sugar.

Why not start eating grain free from the morning? E.g. having grain free granola (: Enjoy!

  • 1 cup almonds
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds (unsalted)
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds

  2. In a food processor grind almonds, pumkin seeds and sunflower seeds coarsely (see photo above).
  3. Transfer the almond/seeds mixture to a bowl and stir in chia seeds and apple sauce.
  4. In a small saucepan melt together the honer and coconut oil.
  5. Pour over the cereal and stir very well.
  6. Spread the granola out on a baking sheet with nonstick paper and bake for approx. 3 h 30 mins stirring from time to time. I know this sounds like a long time but it pretty much cooks itself. I even went to buy groceries while mine were baking.

Store in an airtight container

  1. […] I know, I know. Granola again. Sorry I couldn’t help it. The thing is that I’ve become completely obsessed with quinoa and want to add it to everything. So why not have it for breakfast as well? My absolute favourite meal of the day! It turned out just great. I even dare say it is my favourite recipe on granola so far. Well, this one and probably also my recipe on grain free granola. […]

  2. Oh snap, thanks very much for posting this! It is going to help me when I order Chia Seeds at the grocery store! Fantastic!
