I was never a big granola fan when I was a kid or maybe it is just I never really had it as an option for breakfast so as an adult it was not something I craved. Or maybe it is that I never had homemade granola and with that control in what I added to the mix.
Like adding Syrian pumpkin seeds which are twice as big as a regular pumpkin seed, or adding hemp and chia seeds for added fibre or just adding freshly grated nutmeg which adds a warmness to the mix.
When we were in Europe the summer of 2015 I stopped in a store called My Muesli in Passau, Germany. I chatted with the loveliest young lady about the store and the concept of My Muesli. She offered me the gluten free muesli to try and I loved it.
Once I was home I made my own muesli and really do like it a lot now. So today I am sharing my latest recipe with you all and I hope you give it a try.
This recipe makes about 3 large mason jars of muesli so feel free to give a jar away so that someone else can enjoy homemade gluten free muesli.
You will notice in the recipe that I do not use any brown or white sugar in the muesli. I found it sweet enough with the added nuts and cranberries but feel free to add 1/4 cup brown sugar to the mix if you like.
