making granola is one of the easiest and tastiest things i love to make.
there are a million ways to make your own unique granola - i love adding different textures to my granola. once in a while all those little odds and ends you have sitting in your pantry by way of nuts, dried fruits and sweeteners typically gets made into a big batch of delicous granola that lasts a couple of weeks.
gluten free oats are tossed with unsweetened coconut flakes, pistachios, cacao nibs & melted coconut oil.
coriander, cinnamon, a pinch of salt and agave are added to the mix.
then baked for a short time
the cacao nibs add a punch of super food power
stored in an airtight container, this granola will keep for 2-3 weeks.
i personally like my granola served straight up with a shot of almond milk
or eaten staight outta the container by the handful
however you like to enjoy your granola, you will be sure to enjoy this version with
hints of cinnamon and coriander.
packaged in a little mason jar, granola makes a nice little homemade "thank you", "i like you" or "you simply are the BEST" gifts - they take no time at all to whip up.
