Servings 3 cups

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup pecans unsalted
  • 1 cup almonds unsalted
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts unsalted
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds unsalted
  • ½ cup coconut flakes
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  •  

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees.
  • In a food processor blend almonds, pecans, macadamia, coconut, cinnamon, and salt.  Pulse until nuts are in small pieces but not powder.
  • Pour nuts into a large mixing bowl, add in pumpkins seeds, chia seeds, coconut oil, vanilla, and maple syrup.  Mix well until combined.
  • On a parchment-lined baking tray press down granola mixture until flat.  You are looking for a ½ inch thickness. 
  • Bake in a 300-degree oven for 35 minutes.  Granola should look golden brown.
  • LET COOL COMPLETELY.   This is crucial to the granola's success.  Once completely cooled down you can break into clusters. 
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Notes

MAKE IT NUT FREE:  In place of nuts, you can use all different types of seeds.  Sunflower, pepita, chia, hemp, flax are all great options.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS:  This granola is so good on its own.   Top smoothie bowls, yogurt parfaits, or chia pudding with this delicious topper.
