Healthy Homemade Granola

There’s a reason why they call environmentally aware folk “crunchy granola.” Granola is a nutritious snack that’s wholesome to enjoy. It’s a favorite amongst the health conscious, the homemakers, and the hippie children. This basic healthy homemade granola recipe from Amber of Fettle Vegan makes the perfect breakfast, lunch, or snack — anytime you need a little crunch that packs a nutritious punch. You can get creative and mix it up by adding different superfoods: cacao nibs, goji berries, sacha inchi seeds, or golden berries.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup cashews, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 shredded coconut
  • 1/4 hemp seeds
  • 1/4 flax seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup raisins or craisins
  • 1/2 cup Imlak’esh Organics Cacao Nibs
  • 1/2 cup Imlak’esh Organics Goji Berries
  • handful of sunflower seeds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine oats, almonds, cashews, shredded coconut, hemp seeds, flax seeds, and salt. Mix well to combine.
  3. Add in the liquid coconut oil (heat if necessary) & sweetener and mix very well, so everything gets coated evenly.
  4. Spread onto a large, ungreased baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes, stirring about every 5-10 minutes as needed. Granola cooks quickly and even crisps up a bit after being removed from the oven, while sitting on the pan cooling, so remember to pull it from the oven before it gets too dark.
  5. Once you have removed the pan from the oven, let it cool for at least 20 minutes. Once cool, add in cacao nibs, raisins, goji berries, and seeds.
