I always have this on stock! I love having my own granola to mix with other store bought granolas and his is because I am able to cut back my sugar consumption without having to feel neglected. It is so nice to have a little nutritious crunch to add on everything, seriously everything...I add this on Smoothie bowls, sweet potatoes, even Ice cream! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
NOTE** Don't be afraid to experiment with different nuts and find what fits your fancy.
1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut flakes (not shreds)
3/4 cup whole oats
1 cup raw unsalted nuts (my favorites are hazelnuts, almonds, and pecans)
1/2 cup cacao nibs
1 TBL ground flax seeds
1 tsp flaxseeds
1 TBL chia seeds
pinch of nutmeg (fresh ground if on hand)
2 tsp cinnamon of cinnamon
2-3 TBL melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla (to taste)
1 TBL cocao powder
1 dropper full of liquid sweet-leaf stevia Chocolate or Vanilla (or you can use stevia packet)
1/2 TBLS maple syrup (optional if not using stevia drops)
**Makes 2 heaping Cups of Granola**
1) Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
2) Measure nuts and roughly chop to your liking, (I like large pieces but some like fine chopped Your choice!) If using pre chopped nuts omit this step and high five for making it easy!
3) Use large bowl and add all your dry ingredients mix well, then add vanilla extract and stevia drops (or maple syrup) and the coconut oil. NOTE** add 1 TBLS at a time, don't over soak your granola , add just enough to coat everything evenly.
4) Spread evenly on a baking dish and place in the oven! flip your granola every 8-10 min. Bake for roughly 22- 30 min. You decided how toasted you wish your granola to be. I like 30 min, nice and toasty. Remove from oven and let completely cool on baking pan before storing away.
Keep your granola in a glass jar, oh how trendy you'll be!
*or place in tupperware,,, or a bag too if thats more convenient*
Keep it in on the counter or fridge or the freezer or all 3! Just see what you like best!
