  • 1 cup of raw almonds, chopped
  • 1 cup of raw cashews or walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes or shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed

  • Pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, almond, cashews or walnuts, ground flaxseed, coconut flakes, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Mix well to combine.
  4. Spread a layer of granola mixture on the lined baking sheet, distributing evenly.
