Life Changing Oats N’ Nuts Granola {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 22, 2021

Comin' at you on this fine Thursday morning with another new granola recipe! Forget everything I have ever said- this one is my fave. This granola is the chunkiest granola ever, and I love all the clumps of chopped nuts. Unlike a lot of my granola recipes, this recipe does not require a blender; I honestly love making granola both ways. In this recipe, you'll find a mix of oats and nuts, another with many other wholesome ingredients. It features: walnuts, almonds, gluten free rolled oats, pure maple syrup, pitted dates, Georgia Grinder's pecan butter, unsweetened coconut flakes, hemp seeds, and more. It's loaded with superfoods! If you wish to shop Georgia Grinders and save on your goodies, you can use my code 'wellnesswithmak' for 20% off. They're nut butters are the best quality and have amazing flavor. It does support me, and I appreciate all of you so much. Anyway, I have been obsessed with this on top of my smoothie bowls, and also with almond milk for a late night cereal craving. I find that it pairs well with everything because the flavor is very versatile and classic. As always, it is gluten free and vegan!

1c gluten free rolled oats

1/2c each: chopped almonds + walnuts

3. Add in the remainder of the ingredients and mix well.

4. Transfer to the prepped baking sheet and press down into one large sheet of granola.
