Granola Done Right

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.

INGREDIENTS:

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.

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together oats, nuts, seeds, flaxseed, coconut, & brown sugar.
  2. In a small bowl, combine honey, coconut butter, vanilla & salt.  Combine the two mixtures & spread out onto two baking sheets.
  3. 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.
