Maple-Pecan Granola (Gluten-Free)

Oats have traditionally been controversial in the celiac and gluten-free community. Though research is still not definitive, it appears that most people with celiac disease can in fact tolerate oats. Studies show that contamination is typically the issue so it’s important to check labels and look for “pure” oats, those which have not been tainted in harvesting or storage. In any case, this recipe is foolproof. I made several batches over the holidays as gifts. Nothing beats the phenomenal taste and texture of fresh-baked granola.

Ingredients:
3 cups gluten-free pure oats
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup golden brown sugar, divided
½ cup maple syrup
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon maple extract
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoons melted butter

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325° F and position rack low in the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Melt ½ cup sugar and syrup in a small pot then transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in egg whites, maple and vanilla extract and spices. Add oats, pecans and remaining sugar. Toss until well-coated.

Brush lined baking sheet with melted butter. Spread mixture evenly over sheet. Bake for 30 minutes then carefully flip with a spatula. Sprinkle cranberries and bake for another 10-12 minutes, until dry. Cool completely before serving.

There are gluten-free oatmeal. Try the health food stores in your area, Dearie. I was diagnosed last year, and found it hard to digest oatmeal. Try my suggestion and let me know what happens.

Exactly!

Sounded like it's against the law in that state to bring in outside food to any restaurant. A simple phone call to the tavern would have told them that. Prior planning is exactly what was needed here. We don't have the right to break laws, and outside of school and jail, (with the correct paperwo...

Thought I would bring up my most recent addiction. I always loved and had MAD cravings for chocolate. Not the sweet stuff, the powder is always what I craved, the darker the better. This was in part due to extreme anemia, and huge issues with getting enough iron due to internal bleeding issues wi...

Had a flashback of going on vacation once without enough food, I ended up walking the 5mile round trip to a grocery store to get cartons of egg whites, fresh veggies, and almond milk. I overstock everything now when I go places due to this lol.

THANK YOU for the link. Read through the whole thing. Didn't eat for >24 hours and started to feel A LOT better. Still sick, but nowhere near yesterday sick. I decided to just talk/explain in detail how sick the food made me to one of my relatives who was very understanding. She is going to...
