Description

Crunchy triple seed granola without refined sugar or oil – made with medjool dates, almond butter, oats, cinnamon, and a mix of hemp, pumpkin, and flax seeds!


Ingredients

  • 10-12 pitted (200g) medjool dates (*)
  • 1/2 cup (110g) water
  • 1/4-1/2 cup (65-130g) almond butter (**)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups (250g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (65g) hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup (75g) pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup (65g) flax seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300F.
  2. In a high speed blender, combine the medjool dates, water, almond butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt.
  3. Blend until smooth and thick. If it’s a little chunky that’s okay, but do not add more water.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats and seeds.
  5. Add the date mixture to the dry ingredients, and mix until evenly coated.
  6. Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper. Spread out the granola evenly between the pans.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes at 300F. Stir moving the outside bits to the inside and vice versa.
  8. Bake for another 20-25 minutes checking and stirring every 10 minutes so the edges don’t burn. It should be golden and dry/crisp when done.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool for at least 15 minutes. It will get crispier as it cools.
  10. Store in an airtight container or jar.

Notes

*They should be quite squishy/soft, if not soak them for 30 minutes first.

**More is yummier, but it will be crunchy and delicious either way! You can sub any nut/seed butter.
