Maple Donut in a Bowl.
No, I did not take a donut, mash it up, and put it in a bowl.
Tsk, tsk. That would be ridiculous.
Besides, donuts aren’t vegan. Or gluten free. Unless of course you make a gluten free vegan donut…
And this tastes better than a donut, darn it!
And it’s 100 times healthier, too.
In case you’re wondering, what’s in the ramekin in the pictures is not 1 cup of granola. For myself, I did 2/4 cup. But I figured normal humans would like 1 cup.
Maple Donut in a Bowl!
gluten & dairy free
8 cups gluten free oats
1 cup coarsely chopped almonds
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 maple syrup
1/8 cup agave nectar
3/4 cup honey
1 cup oil
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment or aluminum foil.
2. Combine the oats and almonds. Stir together the salt, brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, oil, cinnamon, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then pour over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat. Spread the mixture evenly on the baking sheets.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until crispy and toasted, about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through.
Remove from oven. When cooled, break up granola into pieces and store in an airtight container.
Ok, now for the maple donut twist!
1. Put 1 cup of the granola in a bowl, drizzle with maple syrup, and pour almond milk over the whole thing. Enjoy!
Enjoy your granola breakfast. Or shall I say donut? 😉
