Granola Bars - Grain Free!

This looks like a good recipe for the kiddos! And adults!

  • 4 cups of assorted nuts;
  • 1 cup shredded coconut;
  • 1 cup of dried fruit; (dates, raisin, etc.)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil;
  • 1/3 cup almond butter;
  • ¼ cup raw honey;
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract ;
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon;
  • 1 tbsp. sea salt;

    1. Soak the nuts overnight in warm water with the salt.
    2. Drain the nuts and rinse them well in a colander.
    3. Place the nuts on a baking sheet in a single layer.
    4. Roast the nuts in a preheated oven at 150 F. for 10 to 12 hours.
    5. Cool the nuts completely before using.
    6. Roughly chop half the nuts using a rolling pin or a knife.
    7. Place the other half of the nuts in a food processor and pulse until you get a soft powder (it will almost be pasty.)
    8. In a small saucepan placed over a medium low heat, add the coconut oil, almond butter, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. Heat until bubbles start to form, and then remove from the heat.
    9. In a large bowl, mix the chopped nuts, ground nuts, dried fruit, and almond butter mixture until everything is well combined.
    10. Pour the nut mixture into a dish covered with parchment paper and firmly pack the granola mixture tightly, making a single clean layer.
    11. Cover with another piece of parchment paper and let sit for 1 or 2 hours at room temperature.
    12. Place in the freezer for another hour.
    13. Slice the granola into equal rectangular pieces and serve. Keep the leftovers in the refrigerator.
