A sweet friend shared this recipe with me and I have since made it time and time again! Whether eaten alone for breakfast, atop a smoothie, or sprinkled over a bowl of fresh berries, it’s delicious, healthy and can be Gluten Free if you buy GF oats.
3 to 4 cups of old fashioned oats (make sure they say “Gluten Free” if that’s what you’re going for)
1 cup of unsweetened macaroon coconut
1 cup of sliced almonds
1 cup of freshly ground flaxseed
1/2 cup of pecan meal
3/4 cup unrefined, melted coconut oil (do not microwave it)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 TBSP vanilla Mix dry ingredients first in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl and then pour onto the dry and mix well. Spread on a lined or greased (with coconut oil) cookie sheet, and bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Mix the granola around so it cooks evenly and cook for another 5-10ish minutes. I have found it often crisps quicker and I cut the cooking time almost in 1/2. Keep an eye on it!
***Also, if you’re trying to eat more raw and you have a dehydrator, just throw this mix in your dehydrator for 7 or 8 hours.
