From the CFI Vault: Caveman “Granola”

By admin | In Recipes | on August 26, 2011

While Ruth and Sean are out, I wanted to re-run one of her recipes she posted a couple years back.

Always a sucker for trail mixes and such, I got pretty excited when I saw CrossFit Invictus’ Sarah Murray’s post on Paleo Granola:

  • 5 cups nuts and seeds (I used slivered almonds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, pecans, and sunflower seeds; you can use whatever you want, but make sure you use at least 2 – 3 cups slivered almonds, as these take the place of what is normally oats)
  • 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup or any other Paleo-approved sweetener)
  • 1/3 cup Paleo-friendly oil (I used coconut and highly recommend it)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

Mix honey, oil, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small saucepan and bring to a boil on the stove. Let it cool. Spread the nuts and seeds out on a greased baking sheet and pour the cooled honey mixture over the top. Mix it around to get everything covered, and bake for 30 minutes at 300 degrees. Allow the pan to cool slightly and then put the mixture into a bowl. Mix in raisins and coconut, and enjoy!
She also suggests mixing the “granola” with almond butter, pressing it into a brownie pan, and chilling it, thus making “granola” bars! I’m thinking of topping my granola with blackberries and raspberries. Add your own twist to it and post ideas to comments!
