Good morning! I shared my slight obsession with this almond butter granola last week (I may have made and finished another batch since…) so I figured that it was only fair I share the recipe with you so that you can
form addictions enjoy it as much as I do.
In my defense granola is an easy food to become obsessed with because it goes so well with so many things (fruit, yogurt, smoothies, pancakes) and is equally delicious on its own. This almond butter version is crunchy and salty with no added sweeteners which means it’s an delicious snack for anytime of the day.
Almond Butter Granola
Hands on time 10 minutes, bake time 45-60 minutes
2 cups Gluten Free oats
1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds (or raw almonds roughly chopped)
1/2 cup almond butter (I like the creamy unsalted version from Trader Joe’s)
2 TBSP coconut oil
1 tsp kosher (or other flaky) salt
Preheat oven to 375* and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a microwave safe bowl combine almond butter and coconut oil and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir the mixture and continue to microwave in 15 second intervals until the mixture is runny. Add in oats, almonds, and coconut and stir well to combine. Spread in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, at this time stir the granola then return to the oven for 25-35 minutes more until golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with salt. Allow to cool completely before moving to an airtight container for storage.
