Granola with no nuts
« on: February 02, 2015, 11:12:47 AM »
Every homemade recipe for granola or granola type things have nuts.  I am allergic mildly to peanuts but because they feel the same I get nervous when I am eating other types.  It stupid and psychosomatic but it is there.  Are there any non-nut recipes for this out these.

Seems like you could just leave out the nuts and up the oats.  What about subbing in seeds, like pumpkin, sunflower, flax?

The granola "recipes" I've seen are very flexible.

Yes, just leave out the nuts and add in some seeds if you want.

Also, remember peanuts are a legume (like beans) and completely unrelated to tree nuts like almonds and walnuts.

I know, I know, I said it was stupid but I still react and I want to just have a yummy snack to eat without having to consciously remind myself, it is not that, no need for the adrenaline that keeps flooding my system.

I like pumpkin and sunflower seed but never had them in granola.  Will have to try them.  Thanks.  Never had flax seed, but might try it after the other two.

This is the best granola recipe I've ever tried. It calls for nuts, but you can easily omit them or add seeds instead. Warning: you'll want to make double batches because it disappears fast, fast, fast.

The Frugal Girl and The Non-Consumer Advocate are two of my favorites. You could spend a lot of time there, but happily, you won't spend a lot of money...

I usually leave the nuts out of my granola because I'm too cheap to buy them. :-)
TVP actually works well as a substitute and adds some protein.
