If you ask most people what their ideal day would be it would probably consist of being some place tropical, maybe some spa treatment, a shopping spree, etc.
While all that sounds super awesome, my perfect day would probably be a great workout, followed by a HOUSEWIVES marathon of really any city on BRAVO and a big bowl of cereal with cut up banana or blueberries. WHAAAAAAAAT! PUMP THE BREAKS!!!
Let me stop you right there before you have a heart attack or soil your pants.
- Yes this paleo girl eats cereal IF and ONLY IF it is done right.
- Yes I am obsessed with everything (almost everything) on BRAVO.
So let me start by giving kudos to my mom who makes this amazing granola! I wanted to make it a little more “Hillary” friendly. All that meant was omitting a few things and adding a few things. I also wanted to make sure every nut was ground up fine enough so that my husband could have and digest it without question.
What this resulted in was something that looked and tasted like a slightly sweeter version of one of my favorite childhood cereals which was: Grapenuts.
- 1 cup raw brazil nuts
- 1.5 cups unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
- 2 tbsp of unsweetened organic creamed coconut
- 1/2 cup avocado oil
- 1 cup raw hazelnuts
- 1 cup hemp hearts
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1.5 cups of raisins
- t tsp ground turmeric
You might have two trays worth. I sometimes use a little as a pie crust, but I will discuss that in another recipe post.
