It probably shouldn’t be called “granola,” since there are no oats, wheat flour, or any of the usual suspects in it. But it’s delicious and will please even the most die-hard wheat-consuming member of the family.
Use this “granola” as you would any other, as a snack eaten by hand, carried to the job, or as a breakfast cereal in unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk (the thinner variety in the dairy refrigerator), soymilk, or milk.
1 cup raw cashew fragments
1 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons whole golden flaxseed or chia seeds
½ cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons extra-light olive oil, coconut oil, or walnut oil
¼ cup sugar-free hazelnut syrup (or sweetener equivalent to ½ cup sugar)
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Mix cashews, coconut flakes, almonds, and cinnamon in bowl. Add oil and hazelnut syrup and mix together.
Spread mix on baking sheet approximately ½-inch thick. Bake for 25 minutes.
