Seedy Grain-Free Granola

The base ingredient of granola is typically oats, which are a healthy, whole grain. I eat oatmeal a lot, so sometimes I want to take a break from eating oats. In the summer, I love making coconut yogurt bowls topped with granola and berries, and this is a great recipe to replace traditional granola. This granola recipe excludes oats and grain, so this recipe is fit for someone who may be following a low-carb, Keto, or Paleo diet. Additionally, this recipe uses seeds, which are nutrient-dense and affordable!

Ingredients for seedy grain-free granola

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut chips or shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp chia Seeds
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • ½ cup dried fruit of choice
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp nut butter of choice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 15-20 drops liquid monk fruit extract (can also use powdered monk fruit or stevia)

Directions for seedy grain-free granola

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Measure out the coconut chips, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, flaxseed, dried fruit, and pumpkin seeds. Add in salt, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  3. Melt coconut oil and nut butter in the microwave or in a saucepan. After this mixture is melted, add in liquid or powdered monk fruit extract. Mix well.
  4. Drizzle liquid on top of the seed mixture. With a spoon, gently mix the granola.
  5. Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet. Place in the oven, and bake for 5 minutes.
  6. Pull out after 5 minutes, and mix. Put back in the oven for 5 more minutes. Note: Seeds burn a lot quicker than oats or nuts do; be sure to keep an eye on it!
  7. When the granola has a golden color to it, the granola is done! Let cool before eating. Eat as a snack, with fruit, or on top of yogurt.
