    Pamela’s Gluten Free Pancake and Baking Mix is made with almond flour, which gives all your baked things a slightly nutty flavor.

    The mix also makes chocolate chip cookies answers shown in the recipe on the back of the bag. I have never seen the makes anywhere before until ordering from Amazon. Also makes it really good banana bread, muffins and pancakes and biscuits.

    This makes 3 waffles, so if you have a family, you will wipe them all out at once.

    However, if you’re the “Lone Rangette” like I am, then you can eat breakfast for 3 days off it!

    I served mine with Earth Balance vegan spread and a drizzle of honey and then I drizzled some of the honey almond granola with cranberries over the top.

    Feel free to flavor the waffles with bananas or blueberries also.

    Polly’s Super Lower Fat Honey Almond Oat Granola (Made in Air Fryer Oven)

    • 2 cups sliced almonds
    • 1 cup of old fashioned oats
    • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 tsp grapeseed oil
    • 1/3 cup honey
    • One cup low sugar dried cranberries-added last after the granola is baked.

    Mix all ingredients together except for the dried cranberries.

    The one I used was the lower sugar version that Ocean Spray makes.

    Mix thoroughly.

    What I loved about this recipe is that it uses very little oil -only one teaspoon.

    Cut 2 pieces of parchment to fit in the air fryer oven.

    Take to the shelves out of the air fryer oven and put the parts bin on top. Way down on the parchment with something that’s heavy so you can scoop on the granola with a stainless steel ice cream scoop. That makes it a lot easier so you don’t make quite a mess by doing it that way.

    Lower the temperature on the device to 220 degrees and bake for 40 minutes. I then baked it an additional 10 minutes at 220 degrees.

    What the granola sit on the counter on the parchment cooling for about 10 to 15 minutes.

    Once cool then add the dried cranberries and stuff early. Store in an airtight mason jar or another airtight container and you can put this on yogurt or top a healthier open face apple pie with it.
