Shift Healthy Homemade Granola – Gluten FREE

This one is a ShiftShape 10 DAY ONLINE CLEANSE group favourite. I make a batch of this every couple of weeks. It’s great for breakfast with your choice of milk (I use almond) , or as an after school snack, with some yogurt and fruit.

I prefer to use wheat-free oats.  It makes this recipe gluten-free.  Did you know that oats themselves do not contain gluten, however, they are a grain that is highly susceptible to cross-contamination? So, if you have celiac disease, or are gluten-free, it may be  OK to have oats, but make sure that they are clearly marked “wheat-free”.
