Grain-free Granola

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond slices
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 cups coconut, shredded and unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter), melted
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

    Recipe Instructions:

    Cover almonds and sunflower seeds with water and 1 tbsp salt and let set overnight. Drain.

    Heat oven to 200F. Combine nuts and remaining ingredients, mixing well to combine. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper and granola spread evenly. Let bake for several hours, 4-6. Stir occasionally and break up large pieces.

    Serve with milk or yogurt. I like to sprinkle a small handful of golden raisins and a tablespoon of ground flaxseed in my cereal.
