Homemade Grain Free Protein Granola



GRAIN FREE PROTEIN GRANOLA


INGREDIENTS


Dry Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup walnuts

  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds (or chia seeds/flaxseeds)

  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut

  • 1/4 cup raisins

  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used Ancient Nutrition Vanilla Bone Broth Protein - use code recipes4health to save 20%)

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup almond butter

  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup (or any liquid sweetener)

  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.

  • Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.

  • Combine the wet ingredients in a seperate bowl.

  • Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula to ensure all nuts and seeds are coated with the wet mixture.

  • Pour the granola onto a parchment paper lined pan, and use a spatula to spread it out onto an even layer. Press down with the back of a spoon or cup.

  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes.

  • Let the granola cool completely before breaking it up as it will continue to further crisp and clump up (at least 45 minutes or you could leave it overnight).

  • Store in an airtight mason jar container. It will stay in the fridge for 4 weeks or store it in the freezer for 3-4 months!


SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Use any nuts and seeds on hand. I always switch up this recipe by using what's in my pantry. For example, try pecans, sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts or peanuts!

  • Use any nut or seed butter on hand in place of the almond butter. I love using pecan butter, peanut butter or cashew butter. Try tahini or sunflower seed butter if you are nut free!

  • Maple syrup, coconut nectar and honey are all great options for sweetness. You can even omit.

  • The dried fruit can be substituted with whatever you have on hand. Try dried figs, chopped dates or dried cranberries!
