Gluten Free Granola

I used to eat chicken sausage and veggies every day for breakfast as I do not eat eggs. After doing a diet analysis project for my Nutrition class, I decided that I needed to give up the daily chicken sausage and opt for gluten free granola with almond milk. I went shopping for bagged granola and was so upset seeing all of the additives that really should not be consumed. I decided to make my own instead and the outcome was great! It is a very easy recipe and you can get everything in the bulk section without spending an enormous amount of money.
