  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1½ cups flaked coconut
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Optional Additions:
  • ¼ cups sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ½ cup cashews
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 1 cup raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 325º.
  2. Place the oats, almonds, coconut, sea salt, cinnamon and the optional ingredients (if you choose to) into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Gently mix together with your hands.
  4. Heat the coconut oil and honey (or maple syrup) in a small pan over low-to-medium heat.
  5. Whisk in the vanilla extract.
  6. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to evenly coat.
  7. Spread on a baking sheet (or 2) lined with parchment paper and cook for 10 minutes at 325º.
  8. Flip the granola and bake another 5-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. For extra chunky granola whisk 2 egg whites in a small bowl until frothy and mix into the granola before spreading it out on the baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 375º and then turn off the oven and let it sit for 6-8 hours (without flipping the granola).
