Almond and Pumpkin Seed Granola


Recipe by Joy the Baker

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup macadamia, cashew or almond butter
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • Place two racks in the middle and upper third of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, or grease lightly with oil.
  • In a large bowl, toss together oats, nuts and salt.
  • In a medium bowl, gently whisk together the melted coconut oil, nut butter and honey.
  • Pour the oil mixture over the oats and nuts and stir well. Make sure that every bit of oats and nuts is covered in some of the oil mixture.
  • Spread the granola mixture onto the two baking sheets from edge to edge.
  • Bake for 15 minutes and carefully remove the pans from the oven to toss and stir the oats. This will ensure that the mixture cooks and browns evenly.
  • Bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove and stir.
  • Repeat until mixture has cooked a total of 30 minutes and the oats are dark and golden.
  • Allow to cool completely before tossing in golden raisins and storing in an airtight container.
