Chunky Grain-free Granola
Chunky Grain-free Granola- packed with hormone balancing fats and plant-based protein, this clustery granola is perfect for any time of day!
- 2 cups mixed nuts chopped
- 3/4 cup mixed seeds
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325°F then line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
In a large bowl, combine the chopped nuts, seeds, coconut, almond flour, cinnamon and salt. Pour the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract over top. Stir until everything is evenly coated with liquid.
Spread the mixture out on the baking sheet into a large rectangle. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. The nuts should appear golden and the granola should be fragrant. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before stirring. Transfer to a sealed container and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Recipe makes about 7 cups. Serving size is equal to 1/2 cup.
For the mixed nuts: I did a mix of 1/2 cup almonds, 1 cup walnuts, and 1/2 cup pecans
For the seeds: I did a mix of 1/4 cup chia and 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
You can sub honey, agave, or coconut sugar in place of the maple syrup. If using coconut sugar you may need to add a tablespoon of oil or water for moisture.
