Granola

Sugar Free Recipe

You can whip it up in next-to-no-time and store it away for those mornings when you have even less time to think about what to fill your belly with for the day ahead. Featuring (good) fats from coconut and nuts that are simply oozing with various vitamins, minerals and nutrients, sprinkled with protein and fiber packed Chia seeds, and dotted with juicy fruits – it’s a winning combination for an indulgently healthy break or tasty treat.

Ingredients

3 cups coconut flakes
½ cup almonds
½ cup cashews
½ cup walnuts
½ cup pecans
2 tablespoons pepitas
1 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon Goji berries
8 pieces dried apple (equivalent to two apples), chopped


Preparation

Pre-heat the oven to 248 Fahrenheit. Combine all ingredients except the fruit in a large bowl and stir to coat everything in coconut oil. Transfer to a baking tray and place in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes. The granola on the outer edges of the tray will cook quicker, so check on the tray occasionally and use a spoon to redistribute granola if necessary. When granola is golden and cooked to desired crispiness, remove from oven and allow to cool. Transfer to a bowl and stir through the fruit. Store in an airtight jar for up to a month. Serve with Greek yogurt and berries, or pack it into little jars or bags for an on-the-go snack.
