Grain-Free Granola Recipe
Here is a grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free recipe. Great for snacking, or if dairy is in your diet, on top of greek yogourt.
Grain Free Granola
Mix together in large bowl:
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup raw sunflower seeds (unsalted)
2 cups pumpkin seeds (unsalted, dry roasted or raw)
2 cups raw whole raw almonds (or cashews)
2 cups raw walnuts
2 cups raw pecans
In measuring cup, mix together:
½ cup honey or maple syrup (honey is a little sweeter; maple syrup makes it a little dryer which is what I typically use)
1/3 cup olive oil (or melted coconut oil – makes it a little stickier)
2 tbsps cinnamon
2 tbsp vanilla
1/2 cup water
Add wet mixture to dry and stir until it’s all well-coated. Pour onto parchment-lined cookie sheets and bake 350 degrees F (or 335 degrees F convection oven) for 30 (ish) minutes. Stir every 10 minutes. It’s done when it’s all a uniform brown colour. Don’t overbake!.
Cool, and pour back into a large bowl to mix in:
4 cups (total) of:
dried apple, raisins (green ones are nice)
chopped dried apricots
unsweetened coconut chips
or any other dried fruit of your choice!
Once completely cool, store in an airtight container. Make sure it’s really, really cool before you put it away.
All measurements are really rough…you could easily go a little more of this or that and it would taste great too!
You could half the recipe and I would decrease the honey and oil by more than half.
