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!
