Servings: 6

 

Ingredients: 

- 1 cup raw almonds

 - 1 cup raw cashews

 - 1/2 cup walnuts

- 1/2 cup pecans

- 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds

 - 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

- 1/4 cup coconut oil

 - 1/2 cup organic honey

- 1 tsp. vanilla extract 

- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Equipment:

 - Food processor or blender

- Medium sized mixing bowl 

- Stirring spoon

 - Parchment paper

- Baking sheet

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 275F (or 300 if you like it more toasted) . Place the almonds (I do by themselves first),

then cashews, pecans, walnuts and coconut flakes in a food processor or blender and pulse a few times

 to break into small pieces. 

 

2. Melt the coconut oil. Add to honey, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a medium sized mixing bowl and

 stir to mix. Add the sunflower seeds, nuts and coconut flakes and stir to coat.

 

3. Spread the granola mixture evenly onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat and

 cook for about 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring once halfway through cooking and pressing

 flat. Remove from heat.

 

4. Allow to cool until hardened, and then break into chunks and enjoy.
