CACAO ALMOND CRUNCH


Cacao Almond Crunch

Wheat Free/Dairy Free/Gluten Free/Vegan/Paleo

This is a very versatile granola. Perfect for a snack on its own or topped over your favourite fresh fruit. I Love mine with sliced banana and Greek yogurt. Enjoy!

INGREDIANTS:

1/2 Cup Raw Sunflower Seeds
1/2 Cup Raw Pumpkins Seeds
1 Cup Almond Meal
1 Cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
2Cups Almonds chopped or slivered
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2Cup 100% Raw Organic Honey/Agave/Coconut Nectar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Tablespoon Unsweetened Cacao Powder
Cinnamon to taste, the more the stronger the taste will be – I like about 2 teaspoons

 STEPS:

  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well
  • In a separate bowl, combine all of your wet ingredients
  • Microwave wet ingredients on high for 20-30 seconds to help it mix better
  • Once warm, pour your wet ingredients over your dry seed and nut mixture and mix well with a fork to ensure you coat everything
  • Spread your mixture evenly on a baking tray lined with baking paper
  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and stir around to ensure nothing burns, I put it back in the bowl and then re spread it on the baking sheet
  • Place back in the oven for 5 minutes
  • Remove and let cool, it tastes better cold and also develops its crunchiness as it cools
