Rice Puff Granola (Vegan & GF)

The chilled weather is hitting us harder in the morning. It’s getting a lot harder to leave my comfortable (and warm) bed and head downstairs to get some breakfast before starting the day.

What is kinda making it up is the fact that I have some aromatic crunchiness coming straight from my pantry. And as you all may know already, I’m slightly obsessed with smoothies bowls (did you hear about my new e-book coming?) and I love having something crunchy to add to all the textures and flavours that go in there.

So I made a new crunchy and sweet granola with something I was hoping to use for quite a long time. Rice puffs!
Rice Puff Granola

They are often underrated but are so delicious! I like the organic Puffed Rice from Abundant Earth which is also organic. They are great as a gluten free substitute for breakfasts and crunchy bars.
The best part is when they are roasted with a few other ingredients and then BOOM! Bursting flavours & crunchiness all over!

And with a few add-ons it made the perfect granola to top my smoothies. A lot lighter than the counterparts with oats, this version has also less calories and extra crispiness.

Also perfect to add on your yoghurt and nice-cream. Just give it a go!

I guarantee your house will be smelling like heaven (at least) so try it out and let me know what you think on this twist.

      Hi there! I’m not sure if I understand it right? It’s a granola recipe, it doesn’t need to rise nor it needs a food processor. Are we talking about the same recipe?
