INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal (sub chia seeds)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • zest from 1 large navel orange
  • 1 cup dried fruit, larger pieces chopped (I used 1/2 cup raisins & 1/2 cup chopped dried apple rings)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (sub melted coconut oil)
  • 2 tablespoons honey (no subs)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (sub honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
DIRECTIONS
  1. *You just need 3 cups nuts, total, so feel free to sub for whatever you have or like better. Do not sub seeds for nuts. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with nonstick parchment paper.
  2. Add walnuts, almonds and pecans to a food processor and pulse until they form a chunky crumble--you should still see a few whole and half pieces of nuts. Alternately, hand-chop nuts into small pieces.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, flax meal, cinnamon, sea salt, orange zest and dried fruit. Stir to incorporate evenly, then stir in chopped nuts.
  4. Whisk together olive oil, honey, maple syrup and vanilla, then pour into nut/seeds mixture. Stir to thoroughly combine.
  5. Turn mixture out onto baking sheet and spread in as even a layer as possible. Try not to leave gaps in the mixture--this will help create granola clusters.
  6. Bake granola for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and fragrant. Remove and allow to cool 2 hours for granola chunks. If you don't care about chunks, allow to cool 15 minutes before enjoying.
  7. Allow granola to cool completely before storing. Will keep tightly sealed at room temperature 10 days - 2 weeks.
