Fresh Fruit, Seed and Nut ‘Granola’ (Grain Free)

Ingredients

  • 1-2 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tablespoon of nuts almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts are all excellent and I use raw nuts in mine
  • 1 tablespoon of seeds pumpkin, sunflower, hemp, sesame seeds, etc. and I use raw seeds in mine
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoons of dried fruit raisins, apricots, cranberries, blueberries or cherries, etc.
  • 1 apple pear or other firm fruit
  • Optional - 1 tablespoon of ground or whole flax seeds if using whole flax seeds, be sure to add them in Step 1 when you process the nuts and seeds
  • Optional - Splash of vanilla extract organic if possible
  • Optional – 1-2 tablespoons of nut or seed butter
  • Optional - ¼ cup to ½ cup of nut or other milk or plain yogurt

Instructions

  1. Using a food processor, clean coffee grinder or whatever you use to grind nuts/seeds, add everything from the coconut to the dried fruit and pulse until finely ground. You can also leave the nuts a bit chunky if you prefer. Add this to a small serving bowl.
  2. Core an apple (or prepare whatever fruit you choose). Cut it into slices and add it to the now empty food processor. Pulse a few times until it is your preferred texture. Add this to your small serving bowl.
  3. Mix everything in your serving bowl.
  4. Add any optional toppings like nut/seed butter, milk, extra nuts or vanilla. Enjoy (and often)!
