This is a recipe I created for neighbor/friend gifts this last Christmas. It tastes wonderful, and has lasted the test of time -- we still love it after making it many times.
Honey Kissed Granola
3 cups gluten-free oats
1 cup unsweetened organic coconut flakes
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup raw honey
1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Real Salt
1 tsp. vanilla (I use alcohol-free)
Combine Dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside. Place Wet ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour Wet ingredients into Dry ingredients and mix until well-coated. Spread onto large cookie sheet and cook at 300 degrees for 30-35 minutes, stirring at the 15 minute mark. Remove from oven and spread onto parchment paper to cool. If you leave it on the cookie sheet for too long, it will stick.
Store in airtight container in the fridge.
We eat this by itself or with Coconut Milk Plain yogurt.
