Grain Free Granola

 Bake @ 325 degrees for 25min.

1 Cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut 
1 Cup Almonds, chopped or slivered
1 Cup Almond flour
½ Cup Organic Pine Nuts
½ Cup roasted Pumpkin seeds
½ Cup Organic Brazil Nuts-chopped
½ Cup Raw Organic Honey
½ Cup Coconut oil
2 Tsp Vanilla
2 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp Cinnamon, the more you put in, the stronger the taste will be

1.       Preheat the oven to 325 Degrees
2.       In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well
3.       In a saucepan, melt coconut oil, and honey. Add vanilla
4.       Once melted, pour your wet ingredients over your seed/nut mixture and mix well with a fork to ensure everything gets coated
5.       Place your mixture on a foil lined baking sheet and spread thin and evenly
6.       Bake in the oven for 25 minutes
7.       Remove from the oven and stir around to ensure nothing burns (I put it back in the bowl, stir it up and then respread it on the baking sheet
8.       Place back in the oven for 5 minutes
9.       Remove and let cool, it tastes better cold and also develops its crunchiness as it cools.
10.   For a different variation, add fresh cut up apples to the mixture and cook. J
