Grain Free Granola

grain-free-granola

This granola is amazing. Funny story-my sweet Selah had never had cereal in her short little life. The other day I broke her granola bar into pieces and poured milk in a bowl and made it cereal (we were out of eggs). She FLIPPED. Not happy! She said, "MAMA THIS IS COLD! WHAT IS IN MY MILK?" Once I convinced her to try it she loved it, but my little girl still prefers her warm breakfasts of eggs and bacon, coconut flour pancakes or soaked oatmeal.

You will need:

•2.5 cups assorted nuts and seeds (soaked and sprouted)

•1/2 cup organic raisins (or any other dried fruit)

•2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

•1/4 cup coconut oil

•1/4 cup raw honey

•1 tsp or more of vanilla extract

•1/2 teaspoon sea salt

•1 TBL cinnamon

Roughly chop 1 cup of the nuts and seeds. Place in a bowl.

Use your food processor to pulse the other 1.5 cups of nuts and seeds into a finer “chop.”
Add to the bowl.

Add rasins.
Stir in the dried coconut.

In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine oil, honey, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. Cook until the mixture bubbles, then pour over the fruit/nut mixture.

Stir to combine completely.

Press your mixture into a parchment-lined pan of some sort. Press HARD.

You can either bake the granola at 270F for 2 hours for a more buttery and crispy flavor. Or you can avoid baking it and chill it for 2-3 hours in the fridge, then remove from the pan and dig in :)
