Description

Lightly sweet, satisfyingly crunchy and positively packed with powerhouse superfoods, this breakfast or snack has enough healthy fuel to last you until lunchtime. Enjoy post-workout, too!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. maca powder
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 4 Medjool dates, pitted and soaked in water for an hour, drained
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250-degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, pecans, goji berries, cacao nibs, chia seeds, hemp seeds, cinnamon and maca powder.
  3. In a high-speed or regular blender, process the tahini, dates, maple syrup and coconut oil until smooth (a few bits of date is fine). Pour this mixture in with the oat mixture and stir thoroughly, making sure the seeds and powders are really mixed in.
  4. Spread the granola onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes or so. The granola will still be soft when you first take it out of the oven, but it crisps up as it cools. Let it cool completely before putting it in an air-tight container.

Notes

  • My trick for keeping the parchment paper from sliding around when I stir the granola is to spritz the pan in a few places with cooking oil. Then I place the parchment down and squiggle it a little. Adheres like a dream!
