Easy Paleo Granola (See Jane Make)


I grew up eating my mom's granola.  Nothing compares--it's been my favorite for decades.  However, I tried a co-workers granola and when she told me it was paleo, I couldn't believe it.  It was crunchy, nutty, coconut-y--pure deliciousness.  How could there not be grains in it?  Well, I immediately googled and decided to make my own (as I didn't want to spend $15 on it at Whole Foods).  I found this recipe and made a few tweaks to it to create my own perfect, paleo granola.

1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup raw pepitas
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup raw pecans
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup dried cranberries
4 T coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t kosher salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Pulse nuts in food processor/blender (the Vitamix is powerful, so not too long--you want plenty of chunks).  Melt coconut oil over low heat and add honey, cinnamon and salt.  Combine all ingredients and spread evenly on parchment paper.  Bake for 35-40 minutes, stirring at least twice while baking.  Let sit for at least 20 minutes while cooling (this is important--it created a chunky texture!)

Enjoy!

PS It's REALLY filling because there's no oats in it.  This stuff keeps you full until lunch, easily.
