Ingredients

  • 3 C Rolled oats
  • 1 C Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 6 TBS peanut butter or almond butter or any other nut butter of choice
  • 1 tsp real vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pink Himalayan salt (or real sea salt)
  • 1/3 C maple syrup or 3/4 C date sugar 
  • 1/2 C goji berries (soaked in water for 1/2 hour so they’re not too dry)
  • 1/3 C raisins
  • 1 C ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 C chia seeds
  • 1/2 C slivered almonds
  • 1/2 C chopped pecans
  • 1/4 C pumpkin seeds
  • 2 TBS collagen peptides – this is my favourite brand

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees C and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Combine first 7 ingredients in a big bowl and spread the mixture onto the baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the oven for approximately 30 – 40 minutes, checking often (every 10 minutes) to stir and make sure it doesn’t burn.You want to toast it until it’s just golden brown.
  4. Take out of the oven and allow to cool. Once cooled, add the remaining ingredients and combine all together. 
  5. Enjoy with a milk alternative of your choice. 

Notes

  • I like to use Ceylon cinnamon as the other, more common, Cassia cinnamon contains a liver toxin that you don’t want to be consuming on a regular basis. 
  • Always purchase your flax unground and grind at home in an inexpensive spice grinder. This prevents the delicate oils from going rancid, but note: your flax must be ground in order to reap the benefits. Find out more about the benefits of flax seeds here.
  • You can use whatever nuts and seeds you like in this granola, so don’t panic if you don’t have all the ones I’ve listed above. These are just the ones I typically like to use.
