I love my trusty granola recipe and have made it countless times. This is the simplified and stripped-down version which also lends itself to endless varieties. The star of the show are the pumpkin seeds, but there are also flax seeds in there and feel free to add/substitute for sesame and sunflower seeds as well.To serve as a great, filling, and healthy breakfast, add the granola over some natural yogurt and top with fresh fruits of choice and maybe even a drizzle of honey for added sweetness.
3 cups oats
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup pumpkin seeds, shelled
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds.
In a second bowl, whisk together honey, olive oil and salt. They will combine easier if you heat them in the microwave 15-30 seconds.
Drizzle the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and gently toss/stir until evenly coated.
Spread out onto a large baking sheet and bake at 325F for 18-20 minutes, stirring once halfway through baking for even toasting.
Remove from the oven and let cool completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Serve over natural yogurt topped with fresh fruits of choice and a drizzle of runny honey.
