WholeHealthHabits Paleo “Nut-ola”  

Store bought granola is FILLED with sugar so I absolutely refuse to buy the (albeit tasty) junk when it is so easy to make my own! Omit the oats if you would like completely grain free “nut-ola” version. I like to portion it out into little containers for a snack at work, or keep a small ziplock bag in the car for a nourishing post workout bite with a little banana and almond milk. Easy breakfast and clean eats!

¾ cup coconut oil, melted

½ cup walnut pieces

½ cup pecan pieces

½ cup almond pieces

½ cup cashews

½ cup millet

1½ cup oats (increase coconut oil by ¼ cup if you are using oats)

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp almond extract

1 tsp salt

⅓ c honey or maple syrup

1 tsp cinnamon

-----

1 cup dried cherries (or any other dried fruit. Pineapple and cranberries also work great)

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients (besides your dried fruit and coconut flakes)  in a large bowl. Lay on a lined baking sheet with parchment paper, foil, or silpat baking sheet. Bake 15 mins and stir around (outer edges will brown first).  Bake another 10 mins or until golden brown to your desired level. Cool completely before adding in dried fruit (otherwise it will harden). Store in mason jars or airtight container!
