Total Time 50mins
2cupsgluten-free rolled oats
1cuppuffed brown rice cereal(puffs not rice crispies)
1cuppuffed millet cereal
1teaspooncake batter flavor
Preheat oven to 250°F.
Combine the oats, cereals, ground flax, sprinkles, and granulated sugar together in a large bowl.
Melt the coconut oil and whisk it together with the maple syrup, vanilla, cake batter flavor, and salt.
Pour the wet mixture over the oat mixture. Stir until well combined.
Spread the granola evenly on a large baking sheet.
Bake at 250°F for 30-40 minutes or until just golden brown.
Remove from oven and cool on pan. Add extra sprinkles if desired!
Don't overcrowd the pan! The granola should be in one even layer with a little room to spare.
Keep an eye on it! Oven times and pan sizes vary so keep an eye on the granola. Check every 5-10 minutes past the 25-30 minute mark. Once it looks golden brown, it's done. Take it out and try some. It should be crisp and not raw tasting. If it seems underdone, pop it back in for 5 minutes and check again.
For chunky granola: Don't stir the granola at all during baking or while it cools. Once the granola is cool, break apart into large chunks.
For non-chunky granola: Stir halfway through baking and also after the granola comes out of the oven.
Store granola in an airtight container for at least one week. You can keep eating the granola until it's gone or until it tastes stale.
