This recipe has some fantastic adrenal benefits. The nuts in this recipe are rich in magnesium – nature’s chill pill. Selenium, a necessary component in the production of hormones, is also abundant in this snack. Finally, this granola is rich in healthy omega and coconut fats, which boost healthy brain, hormone, and cell function.
2/3 cup Brazil nuts
2/3 cup pecans
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup ground flaxseeds
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup coconut flakes
5 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
4 tablespoons maple syrup/honey for my SIBO clients
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Chop Brazil nuts and pecans in a food processor. Mix in a bowl with all the other nuts, seeds, and coconut flakes.
Combine melted coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix until everything is well-coated.
Place in the oven to cook for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through using a wooden spoon to break up any large chunks of nuts and seeds.
Allow to cool fully before serving/storing.
