21dsd Granola

I started the 21 day sugar detox on Monday because I'm tired of sugar controlling my life!! I've also been trying to add more fat to my diet. When served with cream, this is the perfect recipe to address both of those goals.

1 cup almonds
1/2 cup pepitas
1/3 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/2 tbs pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 275. Lightly chop the almonds in a food processor or nut chopper. Combine the almonds, pepitas and coconut flakes in a bowl. Pour the melted coconut oil over the mix and sprinkle on the spices. Stir until well combined. Spread the mix out onto a cookie sheet. You can use parchment paper for less clean up. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. Return to oven for 10-20 minutes until it's a golden brown. Let sit to cool before placing it into a container. It will dry as it cools. This goes great with heavy cream or coconut milk. It's good alone as well!
