Unlike processed cereals/granola- this recipe contains fresh, whole food ingredients that provide a variety of nutrients in every bowl. The different nuts are loaded with clean protein, nourishing fat and trace minerals for building healthy muscle and stabilizing blood sugar levels. The coconut flakes/oil is amazing for balancing hormones, speeding up metabolism, and keeping you satiated for long periods of time. The goji berries are loaded with antioxidants that are powerful at preventing numerous disease and disorders.
- You can use gluten free rolled oats or choose to omit them to make it paleo, and just add more of the nut mixture.
**For optimal nutrition, it is best to soak the nuts and oats before using them,
- For added sweetness, add more honey/coconut sugar/maple syrup
- The baking time is dependent on how crunchy you want the granola to be. Personally, I like it lightly baked- others like it nice and crisp. Play around to find your sweet spot!
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a sugar and grain free granola that tastes fantastic and is loaded with nutrients. Nuts and seeds contain high levels of soluble fiber to help bind and excrete toxins. They also have a lot of essential fats, protein and trace minerals.
This is a fantastic snack throughout the day, great for your kids school lunches or after school snacks. It can also be made into a cereal replacement by combining it with coconut milk yogurt, coconut milk, almond milk, amasai, or grass-fed kefir as milk alternatives.
If you are going low-carb you can omit the honey and reduce the amount of goji berries. You can also add in some other nuts like anti-oxidant rich pecans, fat-burning macadamia nuts and selenium rich brazil nuts. Enjoy!
