Paleo Granola MIx

I am a new (once again) mom, as you know! I am a nursing mom who needs calories, proteins and snacks to help keep milk production up! I love trail mix or granola because it is a quick grab! 

Here is a delicious snack or cereal... perfect for on the go!!! I am going to play with it a little more next time I make it. Might add some dates or dried fruits. 

and I will not over cook it!!! Yes, I over cooked this batch because baby needed me! :) It almost was a FLOP! :) 



The Ingredients:Dry
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 1/2 cups almond meal
3 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
4 cups raw slivered almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
Wet
1 cup liquified coconut oil
1/2 cup raw organic honey
3 tsp pure vanilla extract


The Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well to ensure ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. In a medium bowl, add wet ingredients and whisk together until well combined.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients thoroughly into the dry ingredients. 
  5. Divide the mixture in a thin layer onto two rimmed baking sheets. It will fill about 1 and 1/2 jelly roll pans.
  6. Press mixture down with your hands or the back of a large spoon.
  7. Bake until lightly toasted, approximately 1 hour. Remove pans from oven and gently stir the mixture with a large spoon. Carefully return warm pans to the oven and continue to cook for another 15 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and stir in optional ingredients, if desired. Let the mixture cool completely in the pans. 
  9. To store, place a folded paper towel (to absorb any excess coconut oil) in the bottom of a lidded storage container. Add paleo crunch to container and cover. Enjoy plain or with coconut or almond milk.
ENJOY!!!!

  1. Made this for us to have a nice snack, I was SO excited. I was busy nursing baby during the 2nd half of the hour, while this baked. I checked it as soon as I got up from feeding him, there was 8 min left, It burned. :( One pan was not too bad but other is nasty burnt. Poo!
    I cut bars out of the good pan and let my boys taste some and they love it! Yay! Thanks for a great recipe, wish I could find all the ingredients a lil cheaper. ;o)
