This chewy, crunchy, gluten-free snack is made with all whole foods, no additives, no soy, no genetically modified ingredients, and no chemical preservatives.

Make Ahead: The wedges can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 10 days.


Servings: 8 - 12 wedges
Ingredients
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats, such as Bob's Red Mill
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds (may substitute chopped raw nuts)
  • 1 cup puffed brown rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup dried fruit, such as raisins, blueberries, chopped apricots or unsweetened cranberries
  • Pinch kosher salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Have a large rimmed baking sheet at hand. Use cooking oil spray to grease a 9-inch round cake pan or pie plate, then line the bottom with parchment paper.

Combine the oats, seeds and cereal on the baking sheet, spreading to form an even layert. Toast for about 10 minutes, stirring once halfway through. The mixture should be fragrant. Cool.

Heat the honey in a large saucepan over medium-high heat without stirring for 2 to 4 minutes, until bubbles form. Remove from the heat, then quickly stir in the oat mixture. Add the dried fruit and salt; stir to incorporate thoroughly.

Use a spatula to spread the mixture in the cake pan. Press firmly to create an even layer. Cool for 30 minutes in the refrigerator, then dislodge and lift out the granola round; the parchment paper will help. Cut into wedges, discarding the paper.
