Super Seed Nuts & Granola

Granola is such a great snack and even meal. Adding some almond milk to a bowl with berries is a great alternative to those sugary cereals. Yes, you can purchase ready-made bagged granola but be mindful as most of them have added sugars and just funny ingredients that you don’t need. My super seed nuts & granola recipe only has maple syrup for a touch of sweetness and no funny ingredients.

For the super seeds, I used pumpkin, flax, and hemp. You can also swap for sunflower or chia seeds. Nut options are endless. I went with pecans, walnuts, & cashews but again get creative with what you like. If you don’t want to keep them whole, you can chop them up a bit.

Mix in rolled oats (I used GF), maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, and coconut flakes (yes you can always add in chocolate chips or cacao nibs for a touch sweeter). Bake it all up together on a pan and enjoy! Leave in chunks or break apart to top on a yogurt bowl or cereal.
