Grain Free Granola

Ever since the paleo phase that I had, I rarely eat grains so I was really excited to figure out a grain-free granola recipe. It’s great to add to some greek yogurt or even just eat like trail mix.

Ingredients:
• 1 cup sliced almonds
• 3⁄4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (or shredded)
• 1 cup walnuts, chopped
• 1⁄2 cup dates, diced
• 1 cup pumpkin seeds (or sunflower seeds, or 1⁄2 cup of both)
• 2 tablespoons chia seeds
• 1⁄4 cup coconut oil
• 1⁄4 cup honey (sometimes I use a little less)
• 1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees
2. Combine almonds, coconut flakes, walnuts, dates, pumpkin seeds, & chia seeds in
large bowl.
3. On low heat, combine coconut oil, honey, and vanilla. Stir or whisk until
combined—only a few minutes.
4. Pour oil/honey mixture over nut/seed mixture and mix well, making sure
everything is coated.
5. Spread evenly on baking sheet.
6. Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. *Time will change depending on the
oven. I’ve only used 30 minutes in some ovens. Keep a close eye to make sure its not burning and take out when everything is a little browned.
