G R A N O L A

It's been far too long since I've posted.. I promise that I will rectify that situation in 2017. Life gets busy doesn't it? I myself have had an emotional couple of months. I broke up with my partner of 10 years. That in of itself is a blog post which I will definetley get to... 

BUT this post is not about breakups, hardships or massive life changes. THIS blog post is about my kickass granola recipe. I promise you will not be disappointed.

I have been working on different variations of the same recipe now for well over a year and this one hits it out of the park. Crunchy, savoury, a hint of sweet and healthy! I plan on filling my house with this smell and giving the gift of food. Really, how great is that?! I might even whip up my cashew milk and give as the pair cause that stuff is bomb diggity as well๐Ÿ’› 

granola 

  •  2c gf oats 
  • 1c raw almonds chopped
  • 1/2c each raw pecans and raw walnuts chopped  
  • 1/2c dessicated unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c raisins
  • 1/2 c dried cranberries  
  • 1/2 c raw almond butter
  • 1/2 c maple syrup (my family makes the stuff so I know it's top quality. Don't cheap out on the maple syrup. The good stuff is actually good for you. Full of magnesium. Just don't drink it๐Ÿ˜‰) 
  • 1/3 c melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

method

 preheat oven to 285 Degrees. 

Mix dry together and start adding in the wet. Mix super well. Spread evenly on baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven, shift it around with a spatula, bake again for another 15. Keep an eye, if you want it crunchier, bake longer. Just don't let it burn. You'll be colossally disappointed๐Ÿ™ˆ 

cashew milk 

  •  1c raw cashew pieces (pieces cuts down your soaking time significantly)---cover in filtered water for min 2 hours
  • 1 medjool date
  • pinch of sea salt  
  • 3c filtered water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

 

method 

 rinse soaked cashews, add to high powered blender. Top with 3 cups filtered water. Add the salt, date, vanilla and blend. I put through the smoothie cycle ( iโค๏ธ my Blendtec) twice and put straight into a litre mason jar. Makes a perfect litre!

Enjoy lovelies~~ and Merry Christmas๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„
