This delicious and easy-to-make grain-free granola recipe is a great protein-filled snack to have around the house. I also like to have it for breakfast sometimes with coconut milk like cereal!
Maple Pecan Grain-Free Granola:
1 cup pecans or walnuts
3/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
3 tbsp ground chia seeds*
1 tsp cinnamon (non-irradiated)
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp coconut oil (where to buy coconut oil)
1/4 cup raisins
*to grind chia seeds put them in a coffee grinder like this one
1. Combine all ingredients except for the raisins in a bowl and mix well to incorporate the maple syrup and chia seeds with the other ingredients. Make sure you melt the coconut oil before you mix it with the other ingredients.
2. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 300° to 325° (depending on your oven heat, mine tends to get very hot, so I did 300°) and bake, mixing halfway through, for about 10-15 minutes or until the granola is crispy and golden brown, be careful not to burn.
3. Remove granola from the oven and let cool, then add in the raisins. The raisins tend to get too hard if you bake them in the oven, so I prefer to put them in afterwards.
4. Save in a jar for breakfast or a snack. I like to have mine like cereal with some coconut milk (I like this bpa-free, additive-free brand)
