Low Grain, High Protein, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, and Raw. I realize it sounds pretty gross but I’m telling you, this “granola” is DELICIOUS. When I’m not home to cook, this is what Mike has for dinner. Haha.
I started making this stuff when I started my new goal of less grain/carbs for breakfast and dinner and much higher protein. Granola is my #1 choice for breakfast but I can be kind of picky. That’s why I was so surprised that it is SO GOOD. It’s a twist on another recipe from the awesome book in this post.
1 cup pepitas, aka pumpkin seeds (they’re really high in protein and so yummy)
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup brown rice protein, OPTIONAL
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup raw almonds, slivered or sliced
3/4 cup raw walnuts, in pieces
1 cup dried fruit such as raisins or cranberries, or a mix!
1/2 cup GF oats
Grind up pepitas, sunflower seeds, and coconut. I use a tiny food processor I got at Goodwill. You could do it in a blender though, or just leave everything whole. Pour all that into a gallon ziploc bag. Add all other ingredients. Shake it all up. Scoop out 1/2 to 1 cup, pour some almond or coconut milk over it. Enjoy!
This is possibly the easiest all-at-once breakfast I’ve ever made. It takes about 10 minutes to make a batch to last 2 or 3 weeks. And, because it’s so high in protein, it keeps me full for hours.
Another tip, keep the granola in the gallon bag with a 1/2 cup measuring cup in there. This way you can ration your supply saving you money and preventing over indulgence.
Smiles are contagious, plant one right on your kisser and keep it there all day 🙂
