Naturally sweetened crispy coconut cinnamon and date granola that makes for an excellent breakfast cereal, smoothie topping or snack.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of rolled oats
  • ¼ cup of raw almonds, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup of raw pecans or walnuts, roughly chopped
  • ⅓ cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 heaping tbsp of cinnamon
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp of coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup of date molasses or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup of dried dates, rolled in flour
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C (320 F) and line 2 baking sheets with parchment or baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients save for the dates and mix well.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together your wet ingredients until well combined.
  4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry and stir with a spatula until the granola is evenly coated.
  5. Spread on two baking drays in an even layer and bake for 20 minutes, making sure to stir it at the halfway mark and turn the pan in the oven so that it cooks evenly. Be sure to keep a close eye on it as granola can burn very easily.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before stirring in your dates or other dried fruit of choice. Store in an airtight container outside of the fridge.
