Sugar Free Nutty Chocolate Granola

This is a recipe I have adapted from one of Sarah Wilson's.  I have added rolled oats, poppy seeds and sesame seeds.  Sometimes I use different nuts but mostly I use almonds as they are the cheapest.

Nutty Chocolate Granola

3 Cups Coconut Flakes
2 Cups Activated Nuts (I like to use 1 1/2 cups almonds and the rest any other nut I have on hand)
1/2 Cup Pepitas
1/2 Cup Sunflower Seed
2 Tbs Chia Seeds
2 Tbs Poppy Seeds
2 Tbs Sesame Seeds
1 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Raw Cacao Powder
1/4 Cup Rice Malt Syrup
80 gm Butter or Coconut Oil

Preheat your oven to 120 degrees Celsius.  Melt your butter and add the rice malt syrup to it and mix together.  In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients then pour over the butter and malt syrup. Mix well until the entire mix is looking evenly coated and chocolaty.
Spread evenly on a roasting tray and bake in the oven for 20 - 30 minutes giving the mix a good stir half way through.  Remove from the oven give another good stir and allow to cool.

Serve with unsweetened plain yogurt or soak in milk for 5 minutes before eating.

    1. It is really good and even makes a good snack straight from the container like trail mix.

  2. Good on you....that looks delicious .... I have a couple of her books and have to say I find the recipe's a bit hard to the concept though...I do try and avoid white sugar and processed foods.

    1. Suzie some things have too much coconut oil in them for me but I am happy to substitute it for other things. I have some great recipes that I have discovered that I will be sharing.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
