A Gift Of Granola!

This is an unsweetened version, but for those that need a little sweetness … it’s an easy fix!  🙂

What you’ll need…

  • 2c of GF oats (if you use ‘regular’ oats you want to use the slow cooking ones!)
  • 1c of let’s do…organic unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1c of chopped walnuts or almonds
  • 1/2c of sunflower seeds
  • 1/2c of hemp seeds
  • 1/2c of chia seeds (and/or really any seeds you like!)
  • a generous amount of ground cinnamon
  • 1c of water

Mix all of the ingredients together (in that order), mix with your hands to make sure everything is well combined and pour all of it onto one or two baking sheets.  Bake this in a 325 degree oven for about 45 minutes … stirring halfway through.  If you like your granola super crunchy, it may need a bit more time in the heat.

Yay, granola!  🙂

We added in some dried cranberries, but the options are endless.  Remember, most milk is slightly sweetened but if you need a little extra sweetness, try adding a banana or raisins or dice an apple or a drizzle of honey ……… options are endless!  🙂

Happy, heathly eating y’all!
