hemp oh la granola

I am back on the granola train these days… and was getting a little fed up with breaking the bank on granola purchases when I knew making it was super easy! Also I just stocked up on some good organic bulk grains and thought it was about time I busted open some brown bags and got granola toasting. So glad I did.

I like the rich nutty-ness of brown rice syrup and use it often in my baking, so that is what I used in this recipe but you could use honey or maple syrup or agave instead or any combination of them. I opted to make this gluten free but the grains are also totally interchangeable so you could throw in spelt or rye flakes, or what ever your heart desires. I loaded this granola with my 3 favorite super seeds; hemp, chia and flax but again you could use any nuts or seeds you like. Dried fruit would be nice too, but I kept this batch friendly to my picky fruit hating daughter! Have fun with this recipe just keep the ratios the same and you’ll be all right! The process couldn’t be easier…

In a large bowl combine:

4 cups whole rolled oats

1 cup hemp seeds

1 cup chia seeds

1 cup flax seeds

1 cup coconut

2 cups quinoa flakes

2 cups millet

1 cup chopped almonds

In a saucepan over medium high heat to a rolling boil:

1 cup brown rice syrup

1/2 cup hemp oil

1/2 cup grape seed oil

1/2 cup organic cane sugar

a pinch sea salt

2 tsbp cinnamon

2 tbsp vanilla (try this easy homemade version)

 

Stir often and after about 5 minutes of boiling remove from heat and pour over dry ingredients.

Stir in until well coated then pour granola onto two parchment lined baking sheets and bake at 300 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and store in large air tight jars! Enjoy.
