Christmas elves

It is the day before Christmas and our apartment looks like a well oiled machine, complete with  production lines set out for the packing, labelling and decorating of our homemade gifts. This year Dave and I made a big batch of chewy granola that we plan to give out to our family. Just a small token of our gratitude for their endless love and support.

I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, I hope your day is filled with lots of laughter, delicious food and all the people you love! 

1 cup raw almonds, 1 cup raw cashews, 1/4 cup raw pepitas/pumpkin seeds, 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds (no shell), 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup agave nectar, 1 tsp. himalayan salt,  1 cup dates.

  1. Preheat oven to 140 degrees. Place the almonds, cashews and coconut flakes in a food processor or blender and pulse a few times to break into smaller chunks. 
  2. Heat the coconut oil and agave nectar together in a medium sized mixing bowl for about 30-45 seconds. Add the seeds, nuts and coconut flakes and stir to coat.
  3. Spread the granola mixture evenly onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper and cook for about 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring once or twice. Remove from heat and add the dates and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes or until hardened, and then break into chunks and enjoy.
