Green Granola

green_granolaGranola is such a great snack to have on hand for yourself or for your kids! You can toss it on top of yogurt, smoothie bowls, or eat it plain with a little coconut milk. This stuff is also great for snacking on road trips, hikes or playing out side.

We've given this recipe a superfood boost with our Queen of Green.

Our Queen of Green is made from organic, cold-pressed hemp seeds + nourishing organic herbs:

  • Reishi -  coined "Mushroom of Immortality" in Traditional Chinese Medicine, this gentle adaptogen is widely used for its immune boosting properties

What you need:

  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 TBSP Queen of Green
  • 4 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 - 2 cups of dried fruit ( I love dates and figs)
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Sea salt

To make:

Preheat the oven to 300 F.

Combine oats, nuts and cinnamon in a bowl. (If you're making for younger kids, chop the nuts very fine). Heat honey, coconut oil and vanilla in a small pan and stir to combine. Once heated through, pour over the oat mix and stir. Add to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes. Check halfway through and give it a stir.

While the oats are baking, chop your dried fruit. When the oats are done, stir in the dried fruit and sprinkle with Queen of Green.
