Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup walnut halves
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1 1/4 cup large toasted coconut flakes
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup regular oats
  • 1/2 cup rice puffins or more oats
  • 2 tablespoons bee pollen
  • 5 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 3 tbs coconut oil measured solid
  • 1/3 cup cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 inch vanilla bean
  • 1 apple 3/4 cup peeled and grated

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Combine the almonds and walnuts in a food processor and process until chunky (leave pieces for texture!)
  3. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients up to and including the cinnamon.
  4. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave and combine with the cashew butter, vanilla and applesauce. Whisk until smooth.
  5. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir briefly.
  6. Add in the shredded apple and mix until everything looks a bit wet.
  7. On a large tray, spread out the granola into a thin layer and press down with a silicone spatula. You want to press down firmly to try and keep the granola somewhat stuck together versus spread out.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes then stir the granola, pressing it down again.
  9. Bake another fourteen minutes until granola is starting to brown (it won't look quite done yet)
  10. Remove from oven and let sit for one hour to firm up before moving.

Recipe Notes

Note: use large toasted coconut flakes (not shredded). It makes the recipe far more delicious!

Note: the nutrition uses oats in place of rice puffs. I believe rice puffs are lower in calories though.

Note: Makes 3 cups worth of granola
