Granola - Grain-free

Adapted from Civilized Caveman Cooking

  • 1/2 cup (60 g) raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup (60 g) raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup (150 g) almond meal
  • 1 cup (75 g) shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 cups (120 g) almonds chopped or slivered
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup (180 g) 100% raw organic honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Image shows two batches - the top using honey and the bottom with maple syrup.  Can't decide which I like more!

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well
  3. In a separate bowl, combine oil, honey or maple syrup and vanilla. Microwaving for 20-30 seconds will help to mix it.
  4. Pour your wet ingredients over the seed and nut mixture and mix well to coat.
  5. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Stir to break up and continue to bake for 10- 15 additional minutes, until lightly browned. 
  7. Remove and let cool (it will develop its crunchiness as it cools).
