Goji Berry Granola Bowl recipe


Homemade Granola is healthy but packaged granola is usually very unhealthy!  It is often loaded with refined sugars often in the form of GMO high frucotse corn syrup and unhealthy oils like canola made from GMO rape seed.  Make sure to read you labels.  Unless it says 100% organic you are probably getting a serving of GMOs and extra toxins with your breakfast.  GMOs are engineered to withstand heavier doses of pesticides.

INGREDIENTS - sugar & high fructose corn syrup free, vegan, gluten free

  • 4C gluten-free oats
  • 1/4C chia seed, ground
  • 1C nuts, ground like almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, etc.
  • 1/3C unrefined, virgin Coconut oil
  • 1/3C nut butter – 100% nut butter, nothing added (salt okay) pecan, walnut, hazelnut, almond, etc.
  • 1T cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2t ginger
  • 1/4t nutmeg
  • 1/8t cloves
  • 1t pure vanilla extract
  • Dash of Himalayan salt (optional)


Preheat the oven to 325ºF.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put gluten-free oats in a large mixing bowl. While many granola recipes call for wheat germ, it contains gluten. Instead, substitute ground chia seed. Grind chia seeds and nuts in food processor. Mix into the oats along with the spices and dash of salt. Mix in the coconut oil, vanilla extract, and the nut butter. Combine well with a wooden spoon until the granola starts to clump.

Spoon the granola onto the baking sheet and smooth into an even layer on the sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, checking and stirring the granola at various intervals to cook evenly. Let cool before using to coat bananas or store in an air-tight container and serve with unsweetened coconut or almond milk for breakfast.
