Phase 3 Staibilized
I used to love granola for breakfast and then I learned how much sugar was in granola and I stopped eating it. And here I thought it was a healthy choice! But now I can have it again! With the right ingredients and the proper preparation, granola is healthy. I purchase all my nuts and seeds raw so I don’t have to consume the horrible canola oil so many manufacturers use when roasting their nuts. (Read more here) This granola recipe is yummy and a lot more healthy than purchased granola.
2 cups rolled oats (not the quick type)
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped raw pecans
1/2 cup chopped raw walnuts
1/2 cup sliced raw almonds
1/2 cup raw pepitas (toasted – see below)
3 Tbsp. sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. flax seeds – ground (flax seed meal)
2/3 cup coconut oil (liquid state)
1/4 cup raw honey
1 tsp. liquid stevia
Mix the pepitas in small bowl with 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Spread out on a cookie sheet and roast at 250 degrees for 30 minutes or until nicely toasted. Mix the remaining dry ingredients together and then add the coconut oil, natural sweeteners and stevia.
