STRESS-ADAPT PALEO GRANOLA

Author: Lily Mazzarella

Typical granolas are part of the high-glycemic faux “health food” hoax perpetrated on health conscious folks in this county (many yogurts fit this bill, too). But. The good news is, you can make your own low-fuss, low-glycemic version AND add adaptogenic support to the mix.

If you don’t know adaptogens yet, you’ll want to: adaptogens are safe, tonic herbs that support whole body neuro- endocrine balance, resulting in benefits such as stable energy, good sleep, and more robust libido.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven on “warm” setting.
  2. In a food processor, roughly chop the nuts (you can also use sliced almonds).
  3. Combine shredded coconut, chopped nuts, seeds, Stress-Adapt powder and optional ingredients (if using).
  4. Gently heat the coconut oil, turn off the heat, and whisk in the raw honey and vanilla. While the liquid is warm and runny, pour over nut/seed/coconut combination and whisk/toss thoroughly (this can take a little while!).
  5. Spread out over 1-2 baking sheets and “dry” in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Note: it will smell divine while it's in the oven.
  6. Allow to cool, add optional cacao nibs and dried fruit, if using, and store in an airtight jar in a cool, dry place. *Tip: Double the nut/seed portion of this recipe and set aside for use in the Savory Herb Snack Mix

  1. Pulse nuts and/or seeds in a food processor until uniformly but roughly chopped.
  2. Add all other ingredients and process until a thick, but workable paste is formed.
  3. Form into balls on a cookie sheet and, if desired, press with your thumb to form a “cookie” (you can also leave them as balls).
  4. Refrigerate until firm and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Note: If you made this recipe and the dough is too moist to form balls, add more coconut flakes until you can form into balls or cookies. Or, as I often do, leave as “dough” and enjoy by the spoonful!
