Addictive is the perfect word to describe this granola.
~Adapted from Organic Goddess’s Master Recipe
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup raw hazelnuts
- 1/4 cup raw almonds
- 1/2 cup diced dried apricots
- 1/3 cup grated coconut/coconut flakes
- 1/3 + 2 Tbsp liquid sweetener (I used honey)
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 sprinkling of salt
- Optional: Some granulated Truvia, or stevia drops
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet; spread the rolled oats evenly on the pan and toast for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can toast them on the stove.
In a heated frying pan, toast your raw nuts for several minutes, stirring constantly until they start to brown – be careful not to let them burn. Remove, let cool and roughly chop.
In a large bowl, mix together the toasted oats, nuts, coconut, and spices. Mix in your liquid sweetener and liquified coconut oil and mix.
Spread your raw mixture evenly on the previously used & regreased cookie sheet and bake for about 25 minutes, stirring and mixing every 5 minutes or so. Once it looks golden brown and on the cusp of becoming too brown remove from oven and let cool. Stir in the dried apricots and store in a container.
