This granola is FREAKIN' AMAZING. I questioned sharing the recipe and thought maybe I should sell it instead. Lucky you, I decided to share.
Crunchy, delicious, and FULL of nutritional benefits. Put this granola on top of everything and feel good about it.
Superfood Coconut Almond Butter Granola
3 cups of unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup of pepitas
1/4 cup of dry (uncooked) quinoa
1/3 cup of almond butter
1/4 cup of maple syrup
2 Tbsp of avocado oil
1 tsp of vanilla
1/4 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of warming spice
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
2 Tbsp of superfood seeds (I used a combination of flax, chia, and hemp)
Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees. Parchment a large cookie sheet.
In a large bowl, combine the coconut flakes, pepitas, and quinoa. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients except the superfood seeds and mix until well combined. Pour the almond butter mixture over the coconut flake mixture and toss until everything is well coated.
Spread into an even layer on to the cookie sheet. Place in the oven for 10 minutes, toss the mixture, then place back in for another 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Keep an eye, coconut can burn very easily!!
Remove from the oven and toss in the superfood seeds. I like to add these at the end to avoid losing any nutritional value from the heat.
Let the granola mixture cool completely then store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
