Delicious Paleo Granola Recipe

Hey ya’ll. I am currently choking on a vitamin D3 chewable tablet. Ugh. Why do they make those and why did I buy them? So chalky. Thankfully, I am still alive after choking down the remnants with a hot coffee. Yikes..

ANYWAY, I have not posted in a long time because I have been injured (broken rib) and unable to do my favourite things like jiu-jitsu and weightlifting. I was having a pity party for awhile, but I have moved on. There are so many things I CAN DO. It’s unbelievable! So shut up, crazy cup-half-empty-lady inside my head. I have focused my energy more on other hobbies like cooking! I have no clue what I am doing, but I will share it with you anyway.

I love granola! It is so tasty and crunchy. Unfortunately, it also tends to be full of processed sugar and nasty oils that I do not want to ingest in copious amounts. So I decided to hit up Bulk Barn and make my own.

PALEO GRANOLA RECIPE:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup dried mulberries
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup raw organic cacao nibs
  • 1/2 cup raw shelled sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup raw unpasteurized honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350◦F
  2. Throw all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix it up!
  3. Heat coconut oil, honey, and vanilla extract until melted then pour it on top of your dry mix and mix it all up again.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper
  5. Cook for 20-30 minutes until crunchy stirring it once

I recommend experimenting with your favourite nuts/seeds/dried fruit. Maybe sub maple syrup for honey! what??! That would be so good.

Enjoy!
