Whether you’re looking for an energy-packed way to start your day, or a mid-afternoon snack to help you get through the three o’clock slump, this gluten-free granola is the way to go. Jam-packed with nuts and seeds, this recipe will give you a nutritious energy boost, helping you power through your day.
1 cup of the following (you can find these at most bulk food stores):
Shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup of butter (I substituted coconut oil for the butter)
1/4 cup of honey (I used slightly less than 1/4 cup of raw honey which I purchased in St Jacobs)
1 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1/8 tsp of ground cloves
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl
Melt the butter in a pan over low heat and slowly stir in the honey
Pour the liquid ingredients over the nut mixture and mix well
Spread the contents over a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
Bake for approximately 25 to 30 minutes, stirring after the first 15 minutes to avoid burning
Allow granola to cool completely then store in airtight containers
