HOW TO MAKE »
  • set oven to 350F.
  • roughly chop almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, walnuts.
  • place the following in a bowl: almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, walnuts, coconut, flaxseed meal, egg white protein powder.
  • melt coconut oil, & combine with maple syrup, water, vanilla + almond extracts.
  • in a parchment-lined pan, pour the mixture & push into pan; so when it cooks, it cooks together!
  • place in oven for 15 min on 350F, then turn pan. bake for 15 more min, then remove from oven.
  • allow to cool for a few minutes, until its warm but cooled enough to handle.  break apart into pieces, flip + toss.
  • place back into oven for 10 min to allow it to get crunchy!
  • [ baking goes like this ~ 15 min, rotate, 15 min, cool + break up, 10 min, done!]
  • once it comes out of the oven, sprinkle coconut sugar right on top while it’s hot! some of it will stick to the granola & give some extra sweetness.
  • store in container in fridge for ~2 weeks if it lasts that long!
