Description

Toasted Coconut and Berry Grain Free Granola {Vegan, Paleo}


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup larger size whole mixed nuts (like brazil nuts, hazelnut, or walnuts)
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • dash of sea salt
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup to 1 1/4 cup dried berries (blueberry, cranberry, etc.)
  • Optional chia seeds (2 tbsp)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325F and Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a blender or food processor combine your nuts/almonds. Pulse about 5-8 times until nuts are chopped but not ground.
  3. Transfer to a large bowl and add in your pumpkin seeds, mix together.
  4. In another bowl, combine your coconut oil, extract, and maple syrup. Pour this over the nuts and mix. Then add in your spices and mix again till evenly coated.
  5. Spread nut mixture evenly onto the baking sheet and sprinkle a little sea salt on top. Maybe 1/4 tsp or so.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and toss the nuts/seeds on the tray so they flip sides. Place back in oven and bake again for another 15 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven one last time, toss nuts/seeds, then add in your coconut. You can add the coconut to the nut/syrup baking tray or on a separate baking tray. Just make sure it’s spread evenly onto the tray.
  9. Bake for another 5-8 minutes or until coconut is toasted.
  10. Remove and let cool.
  11. Once cooled, place coconut/nut granola in a bowl and mix it up a little more. Add in your dried berries and toss all together.
  12. Add any additional spices and optional chia seed to finish.
  13. Store in a seal tight container or in gift jars.

Notes

if you want to prevent the granola from caking, add in 1 tbsp of egg white protein or pea protein (vanilla) after it’s baked and toss all together.

Makes about 3 – 4 cups depending on how finely you chop the nuts. 

Nutrition is “roughly” estimated for 1/3 cup of 4 cups total made. Brazil nuts and goji berries included. It will vary depending on the fruit and nut.
