Zero waste and glutenfree granola

Nuts I pick up at my local farmer in a cotton bag and Raisins or other dried fruit I get at an organic store which has a serve yourself option.

A homemade zero waste glutenfree granola with steel cut oats.  Sweetened with ricesyrup and a handfull of dried fruit keeps the sugarlevel relatively low.

Oats are glutenfree however they are usualy made in environments in which gluten are used. If you have coeliakie you will want to get glutenfree oats and steel cut oats. With a a gluten intolerance you should be safe.

This granola is delicious with plantbased milk or just as a snack.


9 Ingredients for a Zero Waste and Glutenfree Granola

200 g oatmeal or oatflakes

50 g steel cut oats

2 tablespoons of coconutoil

3 tablespoons of ricesyrup

50 g grated coco

1 teaspoon vanillapowder (vanilla has a neutral effect on your body, cinnamon is also an option but it has a heating and drying effect on your body and so does granola, therefore  I don’t use cinnamon)

A pinch of salt

3 handfulls of nuts noten (I used hazelnuts, almonds and cashewnuts)

Handfull of dried fruit (cranberries/raisins/dates/apricots)zerowaste-glutenfree-granola

Preparation for Zero Waste and Glutenfree Granola

Preheat the oven at 170-175 graden (depending on your oven).

Add the coconutoil and ricesyrup to a small pan and stir well till all is melted and mixed together.

Add the oatflakes/ota meal and steel cut oats. Spread the mixture on a bakingtray and put it in the oven for 20 minutes.

Please note that it is important to mix the mixture every 10 minutes so it doesn’t get to brown.

After 20 minutes take out the tray from the oven. Add the grated coconut, vanillapowder, salt and nuts to the mixture and stir well.  Put it back into the oven for another 10 minutes. After that you take your granola out of the oven.

Now add the dried fruit through the mixture. If you add this together with the nuts, you’ll have a big chance the dried fruit will get burned.


I store the granola in a glas jar. This should keep it well for a month, however in our household it is usually finished within 1 or 2 weeks.
