Recipe: Grain-free Granola

Granola is so delicious. We don't buy it that often, because it can get pricey, especially when you get into the grain-free granolas and making sure it's made with good ingredients. And if you are trying to keep your carb count down, regular granola will not be part of your diet. The oats bring the carb count up instantly. My personal favorite granola involves peanut butter. I also am totally fine without dried fruits like cranberries, but you could add those into your recipe. The great thing about making your own granola is that you can put whatever you want in it and you don't have to measure so strictly. Anyway, you should make this. I promise, you won't even miss the grains!
Grain-free Granola Recipe

Ingredients:
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- 1 Cup Pepitas
- 1 Cup Almonds
- 1/2 Cup Walnuts
- 1/2 Cup Hemp Seeds
- 1/4 Cup Flax Seeds
- 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
- 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
- 4 tsp. Sweetener (I used Agave this time)
- 2 Tbs. Coconut Oil
- Cinnamon

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Put coconut, pepitas, almonds and walnuts in a food processor. Pulse a few times to chop everything to the same size.
3. Add mixture to a bowl along with all seeds.
4. Warm the coconut oil, peanut butter and cinnamon in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until combined.
5. Pour warm mixture into the bowl and stir until combined.
6. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet, preferably on parchment paper.
7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

And like I said before, you can make this however you want. If you have 1 cup of walnuts and just a handful of almonds, it will still work. Happy baking!
