I love granola, but often store bought granola can be loaded with refined sugar and rancid oils, both of which cause inflammation in the body. How did such a wonderful and nutrient dense food become so unhealthy. So here is my take on a version that will promote health and longevity! Enjoy! —Poppies and Papayas
ten 1/2 cup servings
ground psyllium husk
Juice and zest of 1 valencia orange
gluten-free rolled oats
raw pumpkin seeds
whole raw almonds, coarsely chopped
dried Zante currants
fine sea salt
In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix together all the wet ingredients into a medium bowl and allow to sit 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Once the wet mixture has sat about 5 minutes and psyllium husk has soaked up the liquid, mix together the wet with the dry ingredients.
Lightly oil a large baking sheet with a paper towel and 1 teaspoon olive oil or coconut oil and evenly spread out the granola mixture onto baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes. Then take baking sheet out of oven to stir the granola. Return to oven for another 15 minutes. Continue to do this for a total of an hour or until granola is golden brown. Make sure to not over-bake! It is better to check on it more often than not because oven temperatures vary a lot.
Allow the granola to cool on counter and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Note: The granola will harden once cooled.
