One of our favourite energy snacks. Granola has a bad reputation for being unhealthy; done right it is a healthy, nutritious breakfast or snack. ENJOY
4 cups Gluten-Free Rolled Oats
1 cup Raw Unsalted Almonds
1 cup Raw Unsalted Cashews
1/2 cup Raw Unsalted Pumpkin Seeds
1/2 cup Raw Unsalted Sunflower Seeds
1/2 cup Hemp Seeds
2/3 cup Coconut Oil
2/3 cup Rice Syrup (or Real Maple Syrup or Local Honey)
1 Tsp Natural Vanilla Extract
Cinnamon to taste
1 cup Raisins (or dried cranberries) Optional
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all the dry ingredients together and mix.
Combine the coconut oil and brown rice syrup and melt on the stove over low heat. Take off heat as soon as melted. Do not overcook.
Pour over top of dry ingredients and stir until well mixed and dry ingredients are moist.
Cook for 21-24 minutes, string ingredients every 6 mins.
Let cool for 45 minutes - break up granola into pieces.
Add dried raisins or dried fruit (optional)
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
*We switch out the different nuts for variety - Great alternatives are Pistachios, Walnuts, Pecans or Hazelnuts
Our favourite way to enjoy this granola is over almond milk unsweetened yogurt, with fresh fruit or berries. (Peaches this summer have been our fav;))
ENJOY! Eddie & Allie
