If you’re looking for a tasty and quick gluten-free breakfast option, granola is the perfect solution. But sometimes store-bought granolas can be expensive, especially the gluten-free ones. This is why I came up with a very easy and cheap solution to make a big batch at home, requiring a very small amount of money.
Not only is it easy to make, but it can be customized to your liking and can last for weeks when stored properly. In this article, we’ll show you how to make the cheapest gluten-free granola using only a few simple ingredients. The trick is to use rice cakes as main ingredient. They are normally made of rice only, without any animal product, so they are vegan as well. Crash them with your hands to make small pieces and then add all the other ingredients. You can also use mixed type of rice cakes, like corn ones or quinoa/rice ones. This is also a good option to use your leftover stale rice cakes.
One of the great things about making your own granola is that you can customize it to your liking. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Add dried fruit: After the granola has cooled, stir in some dried fruit such as raisins, cranberries, or chopped apricots.
- Use different nuts and seeds: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different kinds of nuts and seeds to create a unique flavor profile.
- Sweeten it up: If you like your granola on the sweeter side, add some brown sugar or more honey/maple syrup to the wet mixture.
- Spice it up: Try adding different spices to your granola, such as nutmeg, ginger, or cardamom, to give it a little extra flavor.
Making your own gluten-free granola at home is a great way to save money and ensure that you’re getting a delicious and nutritious breakfast. With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a customized batch of granola that will last for weeks. Give it a try and see how easy and delicious homemade granola can be!
