Author: 
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten Free
Serves: 3 cups
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups of gluten free oats
  • ½ a cup of quinoa flakes
  • ½ cup of chopped raw almonds
  • 3 dried dates
  • ½ cup of shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ½ tsp of all spice
  • ¼ cup of coconut chips
  • ½ cup of coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • ½ cup of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat the your oven to 250 degrees. You will also need a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper covering it.
  2. Comine the following ingredients in a medium size bowl: oats, quinoa flakes, coconut sheds and flakes and allspice.
  3. I used my food processor to really break up the fig and almonds into small bits, you could use a blender instead. Then add these to the granola mix in the bowl.
  4. In a small saucepan, combine the coconut sugar with 1 tablespoon water and cook over very low heat until sugar is dissolved. Then turn the heat off and add the vanilla and the coconut oil.
  5. Mix the sugar and oil mixture to the granola bowl.
  6. Spread out the granola on the baking sheet evenly.
  7. Bake for 45 minutes, then use a large spatula to turn and mix, without breaking up any large clusters, and bake for another 25 minutes.
  8. Let the granola cool and then serve and enjoy.
