Courtney’s Snackmonster (Grain-Free) Granola
1c almond meal (coarse ground such as from Trader Joes)
½ c flaxseed meal
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp sea salt- more to taste
1 c shredded unsweetened coconut
¼ c sunflower seeds (or any other seeds/nut of a similar size such as pumpkin seeds, cashew pieces, slivered almonds)
~2 c mix unroasted, unsalted nuts (combo of almonds, pecans, walnuts is my favorite)
1 big handful of dried wild blueberries (or other dried fruit diced up)
1 Tbsp vanilla
½ c coconut oil in solid form
¼ c + 1 Tbsp honey
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a large baking sheet with foil (this makes for easier clean up).
2. Mix all dry ingredients (EXCEPT dried fruit) in a large bowl.
3. Melt coconut oil in microwave. Mix in the honey and vanilla and then stir into the dry until everything is moistened.
4. Use a spatula to spread granola evenly on the baking sheet.
5. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Gently stir and flip in sections.
6. Increase temperature to 325 degrees.
7. While oven temp increases sprinkle your dried fruit over the just flipped granola and press down into the granola with a spatula.
8. Return to the oven for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it, you don’t want it to darken too much and taste burnt.
9. Once removed from the oven let it cool, this is what will let it get crunchy.
10. Enjoy over full-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, with almond milk, or just by itself!
