Nummy-Nummy-In-My-Tummy Paleo Granola

I am starting 7th grade on Wednesday! Every school day morning is going to be rushed and hectic, so it's going to be so nice to have a yummy, nutritious breakfast waiting for me when I wake up. This granola is full of yummy seeds, nuts, superfoods, and doesn't contain any refined sugars, dairy, or grains. And, above all, it's
super delicious, and mysteriously disappears off our counter every time I make a batch! 
Makes about 4 servings.


1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes or unsweetened shredded coconut*
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup slivered or sliced almonds
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup cacao nibs
2 Tbs flax seeds
2 Tbs chia seeds
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)
2 Tbs coconut oil, melted
2 Tbs coconut sugar (or sweetener of your choice e.g., honey, maple syrup)
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)

*I prefer to use coconut flakes for this recipe, rather then shredded coconut, because it gives the granola a great texture, and the flakes crisp up really nicely when baked.

1. In a medium sized bowl, thoroughly combine all ingredients with your hands.
2. Spread the mixture thinly (about a 1/4 inch thick) onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, until slightly browned.
4. Let granola cool for 5 minutes, then serve!

Store left over granola (if it's not all in your tummy) in a glass jar on your counter, and nibble on it all day long!
