Oat-Free Homemade Granola

Since oats are not safe from gluten and many people who have wheat allergies also have an allergy to oats, granola can be off-limits to those with gluten intolerance.  Here’s a great way to bring back that staple of a healthy breakfast.  It’s also very convenient to make a batch and save for those mornings when you’re short on time and need a no-preparation solution for a quick breakfast.



1 cup Nutty Rice Cereal (or any gluten-free rice cereal)

1 cup walnuts

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup roasted buckwheat (kasha – can be found in bulk section of health-food stores)

4-6 Medjool dates, chopped (low-glycemic alternative to raisins or cranberries, which are high in sugar)

2 T olive oil

2 T agave nectar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Combine all ingredients in a 9 x 13 baking pan.  Bake for 10 minutes, stirring ingredients half-way through.  Allow to cool slightly, then remove from pan. 


Goes great with soy milk or rice milk – it’s also very “energy dense,” so you don’t need a very large portion to fill you up!
