  • ¾ cup (3.75 oz) sesame seeds
  • ½ cup (2.5 oz) sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup (2.5 oz) hemp seeds, optional
  • 3 cups (9 oz) any combination of chopped almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans
  • 1 cup (2.5 oz) shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • ½ t salt
  • 2 T cinnamon
  • ¾ cup (6 oz) coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup (12 oz) honey
  • 1½ T Vanilla extract
  • 1½ t almond extract
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 250 degrees. Line two jellyroll pans with parchment paper.
  2. Combine oats through cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
  4. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  5. Divide granola onto prepared pans.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for a total of 80-90 minutes. Every 30 minutes, stir granola and rotate pans in the oven.
