INGREDIENTS 

For the Paleo Granola:

  • 4 cups mixed seeds and nuts, such as pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, goji berries, almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios
  • ½ cup cacao nibs
  • ½ cup coconut flakes
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup, or 2 tbsp monk fruit maple-flavored syrup
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1.5 cups mixed unsweetened dried fruits, such as golden berries, mulberries, figs, dates, raisins, dried sour cherries, and/or apricots, finely chopped

To Serve:

  • Strawberry compote, jam, etc (frozen, mashed strawberries work well)
  • Dairy-free yogurt or greek yogurt, unsweetened and plain, about ½ cup per serving
  • Fresh berries of choice, strawberries, black berries, blueberries

INSTRUCTIONS

For the Paleo Granola:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Mix everything well except the dried fruits in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Line a large sheet pan with parchment. Spread the seeds onto the prepared sheet in one single layer. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Stir every 10 minutes.
  3. Use this time to finely chop the dry fruits in a small food processor or other kitchen device. You might need to scrape the bowl and pulse a few times.
  4. Once the nuts and/or seeds are out of the oven, let cool for 5 minutes. Toss in chopped dry fruits and set the sheet aside to let cool completely (it’ll crisp up more).

To Serve and Store:
