As I continue my mission to align my cooking with my nutritious lifestyle, I’m continually amazed at some of the recipes I try that taste SOOOO GOOD!! This granola is no exception.
Jump Start Granola
The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook #2 by Tosca Rena
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup roughly chopped unsalted almonds
1/4 cup roughly chopped unsalted cashews
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw sunflower seed kernels
2 tbsp flaxseed
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 heaping tbsp natural brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup raw coconut butter or oil, melted
1 tsp real vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup of your favorite unsweetened dried fruit, such as raisins, currants, cranberries, cherries or blueberries.
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together oats, nuts, seeds, flaxseed, coconut, & brown sugar.
- In a small bowl, combine honey, coconut butter, vanilla & salt. Combine the two mixtures & spread out onto two baking sheets.
- Bake in the oven 75 to 90 minutes, stirring two or three times so granola browns evenly. Remove from oven & mix in dried fruit. Let cook to room temperature before storing in an airtight container.
