I forgot to add the almonds to this before I snapped the picture.. then it sort of disappeared.. so I couldn't take another one.
Here's where the recipe came from: http://hartkeisonline.com/ .. well, this blogger got it from Sally Fallon's book Eat Fat, Lose Fat.
But I changed the recipe to be dairy and honey free..
This granola takes a bit of time - but it is SO worth it.. you'll make it and want others to taste it your genius, but then.. not really - because you won't want to share.
8 cups of rolled oats
1 cup coconut oil
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
2 cups water
leave this to sit for 2 days..
here's where it gets a little messy.. well.. I guess you can use a utensil to mix it together.
I usually use my hands no matter what.
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp flax seeds
1 tbsp coconut flakes
Then pour this into the oats and mix until thoroughly combined.
Spread the gooey mixture out on a couple of baking sheets (lined with parchment paper if you want) and bake at 200 for several hours until dry and crisp. I usually flip mine 1/2 way through.. about 2 hours in to the baking.
Then break it up and store in an airtight container!
I eat mine mixed with dried cranberries, dried pineapple, and almonds, in a small bowl of almond milk. YUM. and no bees or cows were inconvenienced.. I'm not vegan, I'm just saying..
