Grain-free granola recipe

In an attempt to get in shape and regain my hormonal balance this year, I am going grain free, or at least striving for that the majority of the time. I made this recipe this week, adapted from the original grain version. It turned out TASTY! Serve with heavy cream poured over it, or eat it straight. Either way, its a great paleo/primal snack or meal!

Grain-free Granola

Grain Free Maple Nut Granola

1/2 c sunflower seeds

1/2 c pumpkin seeds (the ones with the shells removed!)

1/4 c sesame seeds

1 c almonds, processed in the food processor until about a quarter of their normal size

1/2 c cashews

1/2 c hazelnuts, also processed in the food processor

2 c unsweetened coconut flakes

1/4 c EACH pure maple syrup, coconut oil, and nut butter of choice

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp sea salt

 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Heat on medium stirring until thoroughly combined the syrup, oil, and nut butter. Add vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients, mix well. Put in a 9×13 pan, checking and stirring it every 15 minutes until its a nice golden brown…and smells HEAVENLY!
