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.
