There’s something to be said for a good granola recipe to fill you up in the morning, or just to enjoy as a mid-morning or afternoon snack. What makes this granola recipe different is that the good combination of ingredients is a bit easier to digest. That, and it’s full of superfoods and tastes delicious.

Granola seems like a health food, but the combination of ingredients often makes it very difficult to digest. In this granola recipe, we removed the nuts and other difficult to digest ingredients and added in superfoods like coconut oil, goji berries, and maca, which make it a nice filling snack with a wide array of nutrients.

Ingredients

Dry

  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds or pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups quinoa flakes
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup palm sugar or xylitol
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup goji berries
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean

Wet

  • 1/2 to 3/4 cups melted coconut oil (enough to cover the dry ingredients)
  • 10 drops liquid stevia
  • 1/2 cup blueberries

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. When well combined, spread mixture out in a deep freezer-safe container, about 2–3 inches thick, and place in freezer.

When ready to eat, place in bowl and cover with your choice of coconut, almond, or hemp milk.
