Recipe: Paleo Crunchy Cocoa Granola

Looking for something nourishing, and delicious to make? Granola is an excellent source of fiber, inflammation-reducing omegas and natural functional ingredients for your body. You can make a granola out of any combination of Oats + Nuts you have available but we've prepared a guide below to help get you started.

Ingredients

Oats 2 Cups (we recommend Bob's Red Mill Organic Oats)

Nuts 1-1 1/2 Cups crushed in food processor (Almonds, Cashews, Walnuts, Sunflowers Seeds, etc.)

Cocoa Powder 1/4 Cup (we recommended Whole Foods Organic Cocoa Powder)

Dash of Sea Salt

Dash of Cinnamon (Frontier Co-op Organic Cinnamon)

Coconut Flakes or Chips 1 Cup

Honey 1/4 Cup

Oil 1/4 Cup (Avocado, Sunflower Seed, Blend, etc.)

Vanilla 1tbs

Nut Butter 1/4 Cup (we recommend Barney Almond Butter)

4. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir well to combine

5. Disperse mix evenly on large baking sheet. 

6. Place in oven at 275F for 20 minutes. Check periodically to ensure the granola does not burn (can burn easily!). Turn down to 225 for another 20 mins (check consistently).

7. Remove from oven and let cool completely before eating or storing. 

Store in large mason jar or container - crush as desired. 

Use your granola for snacking, topping cereal, yogurt,
