Grain free granola.

This Granola is divine and once its made stores for a month or two.

What you will need:

3 cups of your choice of nuts (I used almonds, cashews, macadamia, pecans and Brazils nuts )
1 cup of pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup flaxseeds
1/2 cup hemp seeds
1 cup flaked or shredded coconut
1 cup sultanas
1 cup goji berries
1/2 cup figs cut in to slices
1 tbs cinnamon powder
1 tbs ginger powder
1 tbs maca powder
2 tbs mesquite powder
2 tbs green powder like barley grass

Or anything else you like to add like buckinis or quinoa flakes if you can cope with grains. The powders are optional but cinnamon and ginger help with digestion.

How to make it:

  1. Mix all the ingredients in BIG bowl.
  2. Heat 1 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup or yacon syrup and stir it through.
  3. It gets sticky and dull looking so I place it in the dehydrator on 115 for a few hrs to dry it back out and let it crisp up. You can do this in a low oven about 75 for 30 minutes but watch it closely turning regulaly.

4. It won’t take long as most of the nuts and seeds hopefully would be activated already. Store in an air tight jar and it will last a month or so. I made a big batch and froze half to keep it really fresh.

Remember this is a sometimes breakfast as it has lots of nuts and dried fruit in it.

Serve with coconut yogurt. Or sprinkle on sorbet or dairy free ice-cream as a special treat. My hubby takes it as an afternoon snack too!
