Ever since my oldest received her first cookbook for her 10th birthday, she’s been on a roll. She’s always been happy and interested in helping out in the kitchen, but since her birthday her brain is overflowing with recipes she wants to try.
Her smoothies and fried eggs have been taken to a whole new level, and with her last successful recipe (these amazing Sour Cream & Sriracha Deviled Eggs) she’s been asking me to post her recipes on my blog as well.
I almost considered telling her to get her own food blog, but she is only 10 and I don’t want her childhood to be spent on the computer.
Apple Almond Granola
This amazing Apple Almond Granola is her latest recipe magic. She was trying for some granola bars, but the recipe didn’t stick together as she was hoping. Not to be dissuaded easily, she gladly crumbled the delicate bars up into this delicious gluten-free cereal.
My hubby was so impressed with that my daughters begged me not to let him eat it all while they had their afternoon quite time! As I was working on the photos, he commented, “You know, I’d honestly rather a bowl of that with milk than ice cream.”
That’s how good it is, folks.
With only a few normal gluten-free ingredients, it’s a pretty easy recipe to whip up. And without dairy, eggs, or refined sugar, it’s a delicious breakfast or treat!
