I recently partnered* with One Degree Organics Brand to play with their varieties of unflavored oats in the kitchen and noticed that they promote their products as being glyphosate residue free. Wait, hold up. Do you mean I’ve been eating oats with glyphosate? Sadly, yes! In most conventionally grown crops, glyphosate residues are prevalent in most popular oat-based foods and other grains.
If you’re not familiar with glyphosate, it is the primary active ingredient in Roundup, the world’s most widely used herbicide. Glyphosate has been classified by the World Health Organization as a probable carcinogen, so it’s definitely not something I want in my morning breakfast!
One Degree Organics is not only certified organic and non-GMO project verified, but they have all ingredients third-party tested and certified glyphosate free so consumers can be confident One Degree products are safe to eat. every product has a QR code found on the package that you can simply scan with your phone, enter the source code noted on the pack, and you’ll be taken to the One Degree website where you will find videos, photos and more about each of the farmers and producers One Degree partners with to source its ingredients. How amazing is that?
So now that I have clean organic oats, let’s make something! As I am really into putting nuts into many recipes right now, I thought I’d create a simple homemade granola recipe using nuts. Usually, homemade granola is used to make rolled oats, but this time I wanted to make lighter fluffier granola, so I used the One Degree Organics Sprouted Quick Oats.
Go Nuts With One Degree Organics Homemade Granola Recipe
Prep Time: 30 minutes | makes 8 servings
You Will Need:
- 4 cups of One Degree Organics Sprouted Quick Oats
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (in liquid form)

How To Prepare:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Mix all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and then stir until all of the oats and nuts are coated. There should not be any dry oats left in the bowl.
Spread the oat and nut mixture onto a large cookie sheet into an even layer.
Bake for 10 minutes and then using a spatula, gently flip the oats over turning them once.
Put back into the oven and bake for another 10-12 minutes. Oats should be slightly toasty brown. Remove from heat. As the oats cool, they will become firmer and crunchier.
Serve with your favorite plant-based milk, yogurt, top on ice cream, serve with fruit, etc. These oats are so delicious with the chunky nuts and the lighter oat texture.
If you prefer chunkier granola, you can make this recipe with Sprouted Rolled Oats,
