- 1 Cup Hazelnuts no skins
- 1 Cup Slivered Almonds
- 1 Cup Macadamia Nuts
- 1 Cup Pecan Nuts
- 1/2 Cup Cacao Powder raw
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil organic, cold pressed
- 1 Cup Coconut Shavings
Preheat oven to 160 degrees C
In a large bowl, place all the nuts except the coconut shavings
Add the Cacao Powder and the Coconut Oil to the nuts and mix with a wooden spoon until all the nuts are coated and the mixture becomes 'damp'
Pour the mixture onto a lined baking tray and place in the oven for 15 minutes
Remove from the oven and toss the nuts. Add the coconut shavings to the mixture and place in the oven for another 10 minutes.
Keep an eye on the granola to make sure the coconut shavings don't go to brown or burn, as they can become bitter
If you prefer a bit of sweetness, you can add 2 tablespoons of honey to the mixture at the coconut oil stage, but you may have to reduce your baking time, in case they caramelise too quickly.
Serve with Coconut Yogurt, Kefir or on top of a smoothie or smoothie bowl! The granola should be crunchy and delicious with a hint of chocolate!
