What You’ll Need:
2 cup gluten free oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons pine nuts
2 tablespoons coconut chips or unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 cup coconut oil room melted
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
pinch of salt
Optional: 2 tablespoons dried blueberries
What You’ll Do:
- Start by preheating your oven to 350 F
- Next, if your coconut oil is solid (at room temperature), heat the oil in a saucepan over low heat until it’s melted. Melted coconut oil is easier to mix with the dry ingredients
- Warming the brown rice syrup can also make it easier to mix in. So again, heat the syrup in a small saucepan over low heat.
- After measuring all ingredients, put them in a large bowl. Then, pour over the coconut oil and warm brown rice syrup
- Thoroughly mix all the ingredients
- Place the mixture on a baking tray lined with parchment paper
- Place the tray in the warm oven for about 20/25 minutes
- Stir the mix once or twice during cooking so it gets brown evenly
- Once the granola gets golden brown. Remove it from oven
- Allow the granola to cool
- Transfer your granola into an airtight container
Optional: add two tablespoons of dried blueberries for sweetness and color
