Homemade No-Sugar Granola

by in Recipes, Snacks March 29, 2017

So, I originally posted this recipe about 3 years ago. It is a staple in my house.  One of my favorite foods with it’s crunchy, sweet and salty goodness. It is a recipe I always have on hand and usually prep on Sunday for the week ahead.

BUT, over the years I have adjusted the recipe slightly, as I do with many of my recipes the more I make them.

If you saw my post on Facebook and Instagram this morning, my protein smoothie bowl was topped with chia seeds, pears and homemade granola. Post max cardio conditioning at Burn Boot Camp, it was the prefect combo of protein, carbs and healthy fats. #macros

Here is the original recipe and changes in red…

  • 1 cup GF oats
  • 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

  • 1-2 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp coconut extract
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 tbsp black strap molasses

Preheat oven to 325. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Spread mixture on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 325 for 25 minutes. Let cool completely and enjoy over fruit, yogurt or by itself!
