I'm seriously always making granola now. I don't even use a recipe anymore. Junk in a bowl, make it wet, cook it. Done. It's that easy.

I did happen to write this particular concoction down, and it was pretty popular around here...  sooo I thought sharing is caring.

This granola will literally lift you up and take you flying ever so effortlessly through the clouds. It will do your laundry, pay your bills and find the missing socks for you. Forget meditation and warm lemon water... This stuff is amazing and so good for you, it's illegal.


Preheat: 325 degrees

1 cup Oats
1 cup Quinoa Flakes
1/2 cup Buckwheat Flour
1/2 cup Hemp Seed Hearts
1/2 cup Hazelnut Meal
1/3 cup ground flax seed
1 cup Almonds
1 cup unsweetened Coconut flakes
1/4 Chia seeds
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 1/4 Tbsp Truvia powder (Please feel free to substitute with 1/2 cup brown sugar or honey)
3/4 cup melted Coconut oil
1/3 cup water
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp vanilla extract

Throw it all in a bowl and mix it up really well.

Separate ingredients onto 2 large cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake and watch and turn. Bake and watch and turn. I set my timer for every 10 minutes and that seemed too little, then i tried 15 and that was too much. Basically when the edges of the mixture start to brown you need to mix and turn it again. After turning it 3 times, take it out and let it cool before placing in an airtight container.

Makes enough for 12 1/2 cup servings, But in my house it doesn't last that long.

IMPORTANT NOTE: my 11-year-old non granola eater eats this. Super weird.
