This Granola recipe is simply delicious and full of lots of healthy nuts and seeds. It is devoid of oil. I've been making this granola every week and I eat it with yogurt and a seasonal fruit for breakfast everyday!
6 cups organic old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds, hulled
1 cup unsweetened coconut chips (Trader Joe's)
1 cup raw pecan halves
¼ cup hemp seeds (you can also add chia or flax seeds)
2 tsp cinnamon (add more if you like cinnamon)
¾ cup pure maple syrup
½ tsp sea salt
½ - ¾ cups of coarsely chopped raw almonds
•Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
•Line 2 rimmed cookie sheets with parchment paper.
•In big bowl, mix ingredients (minus the almonds). Mix well.
•Pour onto the baking sheets making sure it’s in an even and thin layer otherwise it won’t get crisp.
•Bake 30-45 minutes. Turn every 10 min until crisp and toasted.
•When the granola is almost done (you will know when everything becomes a golden brown), take the pans out of the oven, do not stir, add the chopped almonds and sprinkle about 1 TB maple syrup on the top of the granola. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. This helps make the granola extra crunchy!
•Allow to completely cool before moving the granola to a glass storage container.
