Hemp + Coconut Granola
HEMP + COCONUT GRANOLA
Are you ready for a crunchy, satisfying, nutritious snack!? This little granola recipe is great for the whole family. Packed full of healthy fats, fiber, iron, magnesium, protein, and more.
It is SUPER quick and simple, but the method does require a bit of patience as you want your granola to be crisp and completely cool before you enjoy it.
You can use any liquid sweeter you like. I’ve opted for honey here but swap to suit your taste and dietary requirements.
The recipe calls for a 1/2 cup of honey. Equivalent to 170g of sugar, this recipe makes a solid 10-12 serves. Some basic sugar math… 4.2g = 1 teaspoon… 170g/4.2 = 40.5g… 40.5g/10-12 serves… are you still with me? Haha, Bottom line, sugar serve here is light on and equivalent to about one teaspoon or 4g per serve. So no need to fret about the sugar content detracting from the nutritional goodness!
I hope you love this as much as my little family does x Ash
HEMP + COCONUT GRANOLA
Line two baking sheets with unbleached parchment paper
Pre-heat oven to 150°C/355°F
In the bowl of your food processor or high speed blender (like a Vitamix) add
3 cups coconut, hemp, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
Pulse on a low setting, 8- 10 times or until a meal forms.
Add chia seeds, tapioca flour, coconut oil, honey or sweetner of choice and vanilla.
Pulse again, 8-10 times until a well incorporated, sticky meal forms, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go (if necessary)
Mix should stick together when pressed between thumb and forefinger.
Scrape mixture into a large bowl and mix in the additional 1 cup of coconut and 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds.
Divide batter between the two baking sheets.
With a spatula or wet hands, spread mixture out into an even layer. Flatten to a 1/2 inch, 1cm thickness.
Bake for 15-17 minutes, rotating sheets half way through cooking.
As ovens may vary, be careful not to burn.
Reduce temperature to 50°C/122°F and bake for a further 15 minutes with the oven door ajar. Use a wooden spoon to safely prop oven open. This allows any moisture to escape and makes for great clusters! Be sure to keep a safe eye on any little people that may be around the open oven.
Turn off heat. Allow granola to cool completely with the oven door ajar for 1-2 hours.
Brake slabs of cooled granola apart with your hands to make clusters of your desired size, or larger pieces for ‘snack bites’
To store, refrigerate in a glass dish for up to one week.
