Groovy Granola


This is my new FAVORITE granola recipe. I created it over the summer for a kid's cooking class and it quickly became my go-to homemade granola.  We just made a big batch at my daughter's sixth birthday party over the weekend and it's already almost gone.  That may have something to do with me eating it with a spoon straight from the container? My girls love sprinkling it on anything; yogurt, fruit, bananas with peanut butter...the possibilities are endless.  Plus it's a great recipe to get kids involved in the kitchen.

Groovy Granola
Ingredients:
•1 tsp Nutmeg
•1/4 tsp Salt
•3 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted
•3 tbsp pure Maple Syrup
•1 tsp pure Vanilla
•2 cups Rolled Oats (I use Gluten-Free)
•1/2 cup Chia Seeds
•2/3 cup Pistachios
•1/4 cup Coconut (optional)
•1/3 cup dried Blueberries

•1/3 cup dried Cherries or Cranberries


Whisk together nutmeg, salt, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla together. In a separate
bowl combine oats, chia seeds, coconut, pistachios and dried fruit.  Pour oil mixture over
oat mixture and stir well.  Pour on to a medium sized pan.  Cover with foil. Bake for about
20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.    Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before gobbling up eating.  Store leftovers in an airtight
container.

Perfect on parfaits!


Great packed in lunches!
