Seed and Nut Granola (No Oats)

Serving size is 1/4-1/3 cup:

  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 3/4 cup almonds
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3 TB fat (coconut oil, grass fed butter or extra virgin olive oil)
  • 3 TB raw honey or manuka honey
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (freeze-dried raspberries or blueberries, or shredded coconut are my go-tos)
  1. Allow oven to reach 325 degrees.
  2. Grind flax and hemp seeds together into a powder using a food processor or Vitamix (or another high power blender of your choice).
  3. Add almonds and pumpkin seeds to the food processor or blender and chop until small pieces of almonds still remain. Pour the nut and seed mixture into a bowl and stir in salt.
  4. If using a solidified fat, like coconut oil or butter, heat the fat over very low heat until melted. Pour fat, honey and vanilla over the nuts and seeds and stir to combine.
  5. Pour ingredients into a cast iron skillet and bake, stirring halfway through cooking. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and stir. Allow the granola to come to room temperature in the skillet.
  6. Enjoy granola with milk or yogurt!
  7. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer until ready to eat!
