1 ½ cups organic unsweetened coconut flakes
½ cup each of organic raw cashews, pecans, walnuts and almonds roughly chopped
½ cup organic raw pumpkin seeds
1 Tbsp each of organic chia and flax seeds
12 organic dried dates, roughly chopped (optional)
¼ tsp organic cardamom
¼ tsp organic cinnamon
¼ cup organic maple syrup
1 Tbsp organic coconut oil
½ tsp organic vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Place all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
Heat the syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract until it bubbles and foams. Pour liquid over the dry ingredients and toss to coat.
Spread the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature before storing in an air-tight container.
*To make a more traditional granola, add 3 cups organic rolled oats, ½ cup raisins, or other dried fruit, and double the cardamom, cinnamon, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
