    Just Nuts Grain-Free Granola and Very Low Carb

    Post by Jan1 on Sun May 24 2015, 17:38


    Just Nuts Grain-Free Granola

    Ingredients:

    2 cup Almonds + ¼ cup flaked almonds
    1 cup Mixed nuts - macadamia, brazil
    ½ cup each sunflower and pumpkin seeds
    ½ cup Coconut (thread or dessicated)
    ½ cup Flaxseeds ground
    2 tsp Cinnamon
    1 Egg
    ⅓ cup Coconut oil


    Instructions:

    Place all nuts in a blender and pulse blend until ground (usually in 2 batches), not fully, you want to have some texture in your mixture.
    Mix blended nuts, seeds, coconut, and cinnamon in a bowl.
    Add oil and egg and mix well.
    Spread mixture over a baking tray lined with grease proof paper and bake for around 20-30 mins at 180 degrees.
    Throughout cooking time stir and turn mixture on the tray so that the whole mixture browns evenly.
    Remove from oven, cool and store in an airtight container.
    I find it keeps very well in the fridge.
    Serve with cream, full fat Greek yoghurt, or my new favourite - Almond/coconut milk.
