This detox granola is rustic, hearty and slightly sweet - it is full of good-for-you ingredients that any health-nut probably has stashed away in the cupboard - chia & flax seeds, oats, shredded coconut, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin and sunflower seeds. This Energizing Detox Granola is infused with a bit of coconut oil, a splash of maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon for flavour and good measure. As you can probably guess, these ingredients make for one heck of an energizing and nutritious breakfast to start the day!

Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 2 cups large flake oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • ⅓ cup walnuts, roughly chopped*
  • ½ cup almonds, roughly chopped*
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup flax seed, ground
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Wet Ingredients
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Dried Fruit
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp raisins
  • ½ cup dates, pits removed & roughly chopped
Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 325°f or 160°c. Cover large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add dry ingredients (oats, coconut, nuts and seeds) to a large bowl.
  3. Add salt and cinnamon to dry ingredients, mix ingredients until the cinnamon and ingredients are evenly dispersed.
  4. Warm up coconut oil and maple syrup in the microwave in 15 second increments until the coconut oil is melted (making sure not to burn the maple syrup!).
  5. Add coconut oil and maple syrup to dry granola mixture. Stir until all the oats, coconut and seeds are evenly coated with wet mixture.
  6. Spread the granola mixture evenly on parchment covered baking sheet and cook for 15 - 20 minutes (until golden brown). Make sure to stir granola every 5 minutes and that it does not burn :)
  7. Once the granola is golden brown let it cool down for a couple of minutes. Being careful not to burn yourself transfer the granola the large bowl, add dried fruit and mix together until the dried fruit is evenly dispersed!
