Roasted Trail Mix/Granola! (Paleo)

This is a mix of different seeds and nuts to give you a healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids! It can be a trail mix by omitting the honey, or the honey can be added to make it more into a sticky and sweet granola!

Servings: ~16 (1 serving = 1/4 cup)

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup raw mixed nuts
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds, ground
  • 1/4 cup honey (optional)
  • 2 T. coconut oil, unrefined
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Few pinches of salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Mix all the nuts and seeds together in a large bowl.IMG_1995
  2. Add the honey (optional), coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt and mix well.
  3. Disperse among the baking sheets and place in the oven to roast for 15-20 minutes (consider flipping around some of the mix halfway through so that both sides can get roasted equally).
  4. Take out and let cool completely before storing in a airtight container for 2-3 weeks.
