How to make Granola without Oats

I really need a Granola recipe without Oats please. I did buy some Amaranth grain but now I cannot remember why?

I have been eating protein in the morning but my Acupuncturist wants me to eat something warm in the morning. What do you eat in the morning?

By the way eggs are not agreeing with me either.

    There are other types of "flattened" grains that could be substituted for oats in both granola and cooked cereal. Rye flakes, barley flakes, wheat flakes, triticale flakes.

    How about sausage or bacon with cheese on an English muffin? Similar to fast food offering but homemade. Its hot and its protein.

    You could ask your acupuncturist if herbal teas would count in the warming department. Something like ginger tea or a chai would be warming.

    I have been looking around the internet for new granola recipes mostly because I have gotten bored with the recipes that I have. This is one of the recipes I found that I have been planning on trying. I looks fun and has no oats.

    @Michelle D looks really good, thanks!

    @dipat2005 for egg dishes, Just Eggs might work, the supposedly taste like eggs but are made with mung beans and have 5 grams of protein.

    I finally got a chance to make that granola recipe and I have to say that I love it! It is worth making for sure.

    I've made granola using buckwheat groats as a replacement for oats and it turned out really well.

    @Michelle D thanks for the recipe. @Lisa K thanks for the suggestion on the eggs.

    Chicken eggs don’t agree with me either but duck eggs don’t cause any problems at all. Just an FYI.

    Yeah I was going to say buckwheat groats as well. And I've also just used various nuts and seeds like the recipe posted here. Both to me are good, but I also like my oats. :)

    You could also just cook up the buckwheat groats to make a cream of buckwheat cereal then add what you like to either sweeten it or add crunch to it, with a splash of plant based milk. I enjoy that as well.

    @babygrand53 lots of great ideas thank you! @ Owl good to know. I am not always bothered so that is interesting that Duck eggs might work better!

    Oh yes @Owl! Duck eggs are a great idea and they taste better too!

    I tried the Minimalist recipe for Granola-I will try to take a picture. It turned out completely different than I thought it would and way too sweet. I did cut down on the Cinnamon though. I thought I would crumble what I have and then get some unsweetened coconut and try again and mix the two batches together. I will try to post a picture.

    Is it possible to grind Amaranth in the wheat grinder or is the grain too small?

    The other think about the Granola recipe is it was much too greasy and I was careful with the measurements.

    I need to eat grain free. This looks like a great recipe. Thanks for sharing it.

    @dipat2005 amaranth is on the list of things you can grind from the manufacture of my mill.

    @Michelle D Guess I will have to check on my mill. I believe it said only wheat.

    @dipat2005 You can use a coffee grinder.

    i usually eat peeled yucca in a little extra virgin olive oil in a frypan. Then i cut up pineapple rings, and cook them for about two minutes in the same frying pan. Serve on a plate and enjoy eating and having a hot cup of coffee.

    sometimes, I have a whole pint of raspberries or blackberries. At times, I cut up five or six strawberries and pour a quarter cup of half and half over the berries.

    white chia seeds mixed with warm mashed blueberries tastes yummy.

    @SuperC thanks for the great ideas! I didn't know about Yucca. Chia seeds and I don't like each other very well. I eat a lot of strawberries and blueberries either in smoothies or for breakfast.
