Mmmmm … I can smell the granola roasting in my oven. Sweet and savory, almost finished and ready to be the “cheery on top” of my yogurt.
I have been reading a lot about sugar lately. Not just sugar, but glucose to be exact. Glucose is what cancer “feeds” on inside the body. So many people who have cancer are being asked to practice a low-glycemic (low-glucose) diet. Although I don’t have cancer, I desire to do what I can to make sure my body cannot “feed” cancerous cells.
Because of this, I have been coming up with recipes that are low glycemic—like this GRANOLA! This sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan and high-protein granola recipe is sure to make your breakfast, snack or dessert delicious and wholesome, and it only takes 15 minutes (or less) to make! Pour milk on top of it, or add it to yogurt, plain cereal or oatmeal, or have it on top of ice cream!
I like to make small batches to last 4 or 5 days (this ensures I don’t get too much of a good thing).
1/2 cup Brazil nuts
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almonds
2 – 3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Place everything in your food processor or blender and chop until everything is combined and the nuts are chopped to a small size. Spread the the mixture out onto a small pan and broil until golden brown. Allow granola to completely cool before putting into a container for later. Enjoy!
