Grain Free Granola

Granola has a bad rap. Most store-bought are full of processed oils, tons of sugars, and ingredients that aren't recognizable by mother nature. Many also have GMO's which wreak havoc on our digestive system and make pesticides even harder for the body to break down!

I have yet to find a legit granola I like. So of course, I had to make my own! 

This is a yummy granola recipe I love to serve with sliced apples, bananas, raisins,  cinnamon (even more!), hemp & chia seeds, and cashew milk. It's super quick and simple to throw together, bake, enjoy. It's yummy and filling!

When I was inspired to make this, I was literally in the middle of cleaning and a craving for granola came on strong. I dropped everything preheated the oven and went to work... unsure of what kind of granola I was going to create.

I wanted to make it simple... I've created granola with lots of dried fruits but it just seemed to limit how we could use it. Personally I prefer the oats and seeds more than anything else so this was right up my alley. The beautiful thing is you can always make it different... the options are endless!

Let's do this!

Simple Grain Free Granola

Ingredients: (all organic ingredients recommended)

  • 3 cups sprouted oatmeal ( I LOVE One Degree brand!
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped raw nuts (almonds, cashews, or walnuts!)
  • 1/2 cup sprouted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup sprouted pumpkin seeds 
  • 1 - 2 tbsp. of cinnamon (more or less as desired)
  • 1 tsp of sea salt (I LOVE mine salty so salt to your taste)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, honey, or molasses (only if you aren't doing one of my programs!!)

Additions: (all organic ingredients recommended)

1/8 cup chia seeds
1/8 cup hemp seeds
1 cup dried cherries, apples, raisins, apricots, blueberries, etc.

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare a baking sheet lined with UNBLEACHED parchment paper
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl.
  • Add in the melted coconut and optional sweetener of choice.
  • Mix until dry ingredients are coated. .
  • Spread evenly and place in oven.
  • Cook for 10 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven to stir, then place it back into the oven for another 5 minutes.
  • Keep an eye so that it does not burn...
  • Granola should be toasted but not burned... unless you are like the few that enjoy burnt food (like my dad).

Add in optional ingredients once cooled. Store cool place in an airtight glass container. Use on top of yummy yogurts, kefir, smoothies, or with your favorite nut milk... it can be a healthy cereal!!
