Healthy Choice Granola

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.

    Do you have the nutritional breakdown for this? I’d like to know how many grams of carbs and sugars this would have.

    This is great for breakfast with some greek yogurt and ground flax seed mixed in, maybe also with some chopped fruit, I haven’t tried that yet…
