Maple Amaranth Multi-Grain Granola


This multi-grain granola recipe was shared with us by Bob’s Red Mill as a part of their Grains of Discovery Event. The event focused on numerous ancient grains, including amaranth, which is highlighted in this baked cereal. Amaranth is a unique little grain that’s looks almost like a tiny version of quinoa. It’s quite high in dairy-free calcium, magnesium, iron, and essential amino acids. Fortunately, it’s pretty tasty, too!

Special Diet Notes & Options: Multi-Grain Granola

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, peanut-free, soy-free, and vegetarian.

For gluten-free muti-grain granola, use Certified Gluten-Free Oats for the oats, and substitute the barley flakes with more of the Certified Gluten-Free Oats.

For egg-Free and vegan muti-grain granola omit the egg white. The egg white helps with creating “clusters”, but it can be replaced with 2 tablespoons of aquafaba. Or, you can whisk 1-1/2 tablespoons water with 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds or ground flax for a mock egg white substitute.

For nut-free multi-grain granola, substitute more seeds for the two nut varieties or use a variety of seeds and fruit.
