This granola was inspired when I had my Girlnola business back in 2011! My customers wanted a nut-free version and so voila – their wish was my command!
You can add gojiberries to give it a nice red color and loads of vitamin C!
Makes 7 cups
3 cups rolled oats
2 cup large flake coconut
1 cup sunflower seeds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup flax and/or chia
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
Juice from 1 orange plus rind
1/4 cup coconut sugar, maple syrup or unpasteurized honey
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (I prefer alcohol-free, it is more concentrated and has a more authentic flavor)
½ tsp sea salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
Might have to add some juice or oil if you notice the mixture is too dry.
- Mix wet ingredients, then add spices.
- In a bowl mix dry ingredient and add wet ingredients making sure to coat evenly.
- Place on baking sheet and bake at 325F for 35—40 minutes or until golden brown and mixing occasionally.
