Grain-free Granola (Paleo, Vegan)
Make this delicious grain-free granola for breakfast or a snack! It's easy and easy to adapt.
unsweetened coconut flakes
raw cacao powder
*optional: 1 egg white
to make granola extra clumpy
Pre-heat oven to 250f degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
To a large mixing bowl, add: coconut flakes, chopped almonds, pepitas and flax seeds.
Separately, melt coconut oil and add cinnamon and vanilla. Stir around and pour over granola in the large bowl with a spatula or large wooden spoon.
Add cacao powder over top and mix again until granola is well-coated with the cacao.
*optional - for clumpier granola, add one egg white and stir*
Spread granola out on the baking sheet in a flat single layer. If you can keep it condensed in the center of the pan touching, it will also help clusters form.
Bake for 35 minutes, then sprinkle cacao nibs and a pinch of sea salt over top (so the nibs don't burn by baking too long).
Bake for another 10-15 minutes until everything is nice and toasted and dry.
Allow the granola to cool at room temp. for 30mins to 1hr or so, then add to a mason jar with a lid to store in the cupboard! Add to: yogurt, porridge, milk and combine with some fresh fruit!
