Best gluten-free granola recipe without oats With Amaranth (Oil-Free, Vegan, No Refined Sugar)

Hey health buddies, it is health first on Ravneet Bhalla's channel - your one-stop destination for all things healthy.

 No, I do not make tall claims but this is the Best gluten-free granola recipe without oats, which is oil-free, refined sugar free, and vegan. The easy oil-free gluten free granola recipe makes a perfect treat as a navratri snack recipe. Or you may call it a Navratri special sweet dish recipe that uses gluten-free falahari puffed amaranth seeds, almonds, pista, buckwheat groats, pumpkin seeds. I have used homemade multipurpose golden syrup or jaggery syrup or molasses to sweeten the gluten-free granola. 

So let's begin with the navratri special sweet dish recipe-cum-no gluten granola

 Ingredients for gluten free oil free granola without oats 

1 cup- puffed amaranth (how to pop amaranth at home 

1/4 cup- almonds

 2tbsp-pumpkin seeds 

2 tbsp- pistachio 

1 tbsp-buckwheat groats (optional) kuttu seeds 

2 tbsp -homemade golden syrup with jaggery/jaggery syrup/molasses 

For this navratri sweet recipe, you need 1 cup of amaranth puffs/popcorn (this is homemade and I have already posted a video recently to show how to make popped amaranth at home without burning).

You will also need nuts and seeds of choice. I have taken 1/4 cup of almonds. This is gur bandi badam, which is loaded with vitamin E compared to the normal almonds you eat on a regular basis. I will do a separate video on this to show what almonds you should buy.

Then we need 2 tbsp of pumpkin seeds, 2 tbsp of pistachio or more, and 1 tbsp of buckwheat groats or kuttu grain. This is optional. But buckwheat groats take the gluten-free amaranth granola to another level. I will try out more navratri recipes with buckwheat groats soon since it is extremely healthy and nutritive option to include in your diet.

To sweeten the granola, let's add 2 tbsp of maple syrup or homemade golden syrup with jaggery. Friends, this is a multi-purpose sweetener that can easily sweeten your bakes, cakes, and sweets. I always keep it handy for my sweets. Makes life so much easier and adds to the flavor profile of the navrarti sweet dish.

What binds granola together?

 Is gluten free granola healthy? 

Preheat your airfryer or oven to 160 deg c for 5 min.

Mix everything together and bake granola in air fryer for 10-15 min at 140 deg c. Please do not forget to cover the granola while baking it in an airfryer to prevent the seeds from flying. I always use this mesh as a preventative aid.

Check if done. Else, bake a little longer. I baked again for 4 mins. 

Your homemade delicious crunchy subtly sweet gluten free granola is ready for munching. I love to pair it with my hot cup of tea. What about you? Do share your experience when you try out this vegan granola recipe in air fryer.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
