Granola is a breakfast and snacking staple at my house. And this version is ideal for paleo-ish folks like me who are looking for a delicious and easy gluten-free, easily customizable alternative to the pre-packaged brands. Bonus: It’s nut-free, too!
In the largest mixing bowl you can find, combine the oats, hemp hearts, shredded coconut, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, vanilla, and melted coconut oil until smooth and pour over the oats mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until wet and dry ingredients are combined. Spread in an even layer on prepared baking sheet
Bake for 20-25 minutes, keeping a close eye on granola to be sure it doesn’t burn. Allow to cool on baking sheet (granola will get crunchier and crispier as it cools)
Once at room temperature, stir in dried fruit mix-ins of your choosing and transfer to an airtight container
Grab by the handful, sprinkle over dairy-free yogurt, drizzle with honey and enjoy!
