Granola Clusters Recipe - Sue Shantz - June/2016
1 C almonds 1/2 C walnuts 11/4 C large rolled oats, or, gluten free rolled oats 1/4 C raw sunflower seeds 1/2 C raw pumpkin seeds 1/3 C shredded unsweetened coconut 11/2 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 C + 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup 1/4 C coconut oil, melted 2 tsp. pure vanilla
Add dried fruit at time of serving: 2/3 C mixed dried fruit (cranberries, apricots, cherries, raisins, etc.)
1. Preheat oven to 275 F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. Place ½ C of almonds into a food processor, or, blender and process for 10 sec, until a fine meal forms (similar in texture to sand). 3. In the food processor, or, blender, combine the remaining ½ c almonds and all of the walnuts and process for about 5 seconds, until finely chopped. You’ll be left with some larger pieces and some powdery meal, which is what you want. Add the mixture to the bowl with the almond meal. 4. Add the oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, cinnamon and salt to the large mixing bowl and stir to combine. 5. Add the maple syrup, melted oil, and vanilla to the bowl with dry ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined. 6. With the spatula spread the granola into a ½” layer on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and gently press to compact it slightly. Bake for 20 minutes, then rotate the pan and bake for 18 to 25 minutes more, or until the granola is lightly golden on the bottom and firm to the touch. 7. Cool the granola on pan for at least 1 hour before breaking it apart into clusters. 8. Store in a container in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks or freeze it for 4 to 5 weeks in a plastic container as glass may shatter. The reason that you put this granola in the fridge because it has maple syrup in it. 9. Add dried fruit before serving.
