I have a batch of homemade "granola" in the oven right now. Has anyone had any success making granola themselves? I have half an hour left on the timer and it's not starting to toast yet. I'm getting a little nervous.

That recipe sounds great. If it wasn't so hot here, I'd turn my oven on and make a batch.

I used to make homemade granola before going gluten-free. Here is my new recipe. It is very forgiving and seems to work no matter what I substitute (I never actually measure anything either).

Emily's Heart Healthy Granola Cereal

1 Cup - Any mixture of the following to make 1 cup - Rice Flakes, Quinoa Flakes, Flax Meal, Polenta (Corn Grits), Ground Rice (You can grind regular uncooked rice in a blender or food processor)

1/4 Cup - Flax Seeds

1/4 Cup - Quinoa (uncooked)

1/4 Cup - Nuts (I use flaked Almonds and chopped walnuts)

1 tbsp - Cinnamon

2 tbsp - Honey

1 - egg white (1 whole egg is fine too)


1 tsp - Vanilla Extract (gluten-free of course)

2 tbsp - Rice Bran (for added fiber!)

3 tbsp
