Ravenscroft’s Gluten Free Granola Recipe


Nothing makes the Inn smell more inviting than when we are baking our house made granola. The sweet aroma always brings guests into the kitchen like bees to honey. I have received so many requests for the recipe that I thought I would share it here.

Making granola is super simple and you can vary the ingredients to suite your taste. That is precisely how I arrived at this recipe. It pays to use the freshest ingredients that you can find and vary the quantities to your taste. The bulk foods section of our local food co-op here in Port Townsend provides everything I need. I tend to throw in more pumpkin seeds and dried cherries when I give the final stir for a richer color palette.

Go ahead and give this recipe a try and then make it your own. Be sure and let us know what great things you do!
