I put granola on everything. Smoothies, bowls, coconut yogurt - you name it, anything creamy and I’ll put some crunch on it. I buy a variety of nut granolas to use as toppings, but also like to have my crunchy oat granola on hand as well. Oddly enough I don’t really use it like regular granola, but the boys do and love it.
This is a very lose recipe - play with quantities for how much you’d like to make, up the things you like and omit the things you don’t. I have packed this recipe full of things we love, and opted to add some Glowing Skin Mix from The Wholesome Co. Any extra nutrition you can get away with adding, add!
Crunchy Almond, Pecan & Raspberry Granola
In a bowl combine:
3 cups organic rolled oats
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup roughly chopped almonds
1/2 cup roughly chopped pecans
2 TBS Wholesome Co Glowing Skin Mix
2-3TBS of butter or coconut oil (I used DF Olivani)
2-3TBS honey or maple syrup
Once mixed, pour the granola mix on to a baking tray and bake for approx 15 mins or until brown checking every 5 mins and stirring to stop any burning from happening.
Once out of the oven, add in freeze dried raspberries & cranberries.
