Snackers Unite!

Posted on Updated on

I find we can go to the grocery store and spends hundreds of dollars on dinners. That’s it. Just dinners. How does that happen? As a self-proclaimed queen of snacking I found it was a struggle throughout the day to keep myself full. A common complaint surrounding a whole-food natural diet is that there aren’t enough quick-and-easy snack foods besides raw veg and fruit. I’m here to debunk that theory. 10 minutes of prep and 30 minutes of cooking produces enough naturally-sweetened granola to feed a small army. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Preheat oven to 350 oC

4 cups oats

4 cups mixed nuts and seeds [I used an unsalted mixture of crushed pecans, walnuts, slivered almonds, and sunflower seeds]

1/2 cup natural peanut butter

1/2 cup organic honey

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup water

3 tbsp cinnamon

Pinch of Himalayan salt

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until well coated. Spread onto a baking sheet (optional parchment paper, I didn’t have any problems with the mixture sticking).

Bake on 350 oC for 30 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet and store in an air-tight container!

I’ve been munching on this treat morning, noon and night. It made so much I’ve even been giving it away to friends! A wonderful protein-filled snack that’s easy to have on hand whenever a boost is needed. Enjoy!

 

Happy baking!
