By far the most popular mix of them all, Mabel's Mix is all the things - Paleo, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined-Sugar-Free, though definitely not nut-free. And it's because of all the nuts, that this granola will keep you full well into lunch time. Feel free to sub in or sub out various nuts for what works for you.
Ingredients2 1/2 cups sunflower seeds
1 cup of pepitas
2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup cashews
1/4 cup brazil nuts
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
100ml brown rice syrup
50ml coconut oil
Method1. Preheat oven to 150C.
2. Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
3. In a medium saucepan, melt the coconut oil (alternatively, you can melt this in the microwave). Add the brown rice syrup, and stir. The liquid should reach a runny stage, though do not let it boil.
4. Add the liquid to the dry mix, and stir thoroughly. Place a thin layer of mix onto a lined baking tray (you might need several), and bake for 20mins.
5. Leave you mix to cool on the bench, as it will harden on the tray. When cooled, break it up with a wooden spoon and store in a glass jar for up to a year.
If your granola still feels a bit wet, you can toast it for a bit longer in the oven, though do trust in the process that it will harden once removed when the oven.
