This is my go-to morning breakfast. It is healthy, yummy, and filling! You do not need to add any sugar- it’s delicious with all raw ingredients.
I usually make the granola first, then while it is cooling I make the smoothie because it can be whipped up in minutes.
Mix by hand or in a mixer:
1/2 cup almond butter or your fav butter: peanut, mixed nut, macadamia, etc.
1 TBSP avocado oil, olive oil, or coconut oil
1 TBSP cinnamon
1 TBSP flaxseed (I like meal because it is softer)
2 TBSP chia seeds
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp sea salt (iodized salt takes all the good minerals out)
1 1 /2 cups oats
1/2 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup hemp hearts
Add any of the following – be creative!
1/4 – 1/2 cup sliced almonds, walnuts, pecans, sliced coconut, pine nuts,
pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, pistachios, walnuts, cranberries, dried
cherries, chopped apricots, raisins, chocolate chips, etc.
Place parchment paper on rimmed baking sheet. Use a large spoon to spread granola to an even layer.
Bake until lightly browned: 350 degrees, 4 min in toaster/air fryer oven or 12 min in oven. It may not look very done, but it still browns when you take it out of the oven.
I have kept my home made granola in the pantry and it is fine, but I bet it would be great to keep it in the fridge.
