Ingredients

  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup creamy cashew butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups cashews roughly chopped
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and position a rack in the center of the oven.
    In a large bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and cashew butter, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Add the cashews, pecans, chia seeds, flax seed, coconut flakes and dried blueberries and mix well to completely coat.
    Pour and spread the mixture evenly onto a large baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to avoid burning.
    Once the granola is visibly browned and done cooking, remove from the oven and let cool completely to get crisp.
    Store in a container with an air-tight seal, and it should keep for up to 3 weeks.
