Power Granola Recipe


Granola is a family favorite, but until this Power Granola Recipe, not something we’ve had a lot lately. I made my first attempt at granola a few days ago, but overcooked it (and wasn’t very happy with the texture). Last night we nailed a recipe that we love. I hope you do, too!

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla
  • 1 teaspoons salt

  2. Combine oats, coconut, flax, chia, nuts, sesame seeds, dried fruit, salt, and vanilla.
  3. Drizzle in honey and oil and combine.
  4. Lightly dust enough xanthan gum to lightly cover exposed ingredients, mix, and repeat until the xanthan gum is evenly distributed throughout mixture.
  5. Evenly splash half of the water into the mixture, stir, and repeat.
  6. Line large cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spread mix evenly over sheet.
  7. Dust coconut palm sugar evenly over top of mixture.
  8. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes, and take out to flip and stir.
  9. Bake another 10 minutes (or less - should be evenly lightly toasted to a light, golden brown).
