Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 3 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw whole almonds
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup Thompson Raisins
  • ½ cup Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts
  • 4 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

Directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350F.
  • In a large bowl mix together, oats, almonds, sunflower seeds, coconut, sea salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Next, in a sauce pan on low-medium heat combine almond butter, coconut oil, and honey, and bring to a slight simmer while stirring constantly until the mixture has thicken slightly (about 30-60 sec). Remember to keep stirring as this prevents the mixture from burning!
  • Take half of the caramel mixture you created in step 2 and fold it into your oat mixture until well combined. Then, fold in the second half of your caramel mixture until fully combined.
  • Spread granola on a parchment lined cookie sheet and pop into the oven to bake for 30-40 minutes until slightly golden, tossing half way through.
  • Allow granola to cool for 10-15 minutes. Then, transfer the granola back into the large bowl, folding in the raisins and Hemp Hearts.

Notes

Note: You can store completely cooled granola in an air tight glass jar for 3-5 days or place in a freezer bag and freeze for up to 1 month.
