Homemade Granola


1 cup raw almonds

1 cup raw cashews

1/4 cup raw shelled pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup raw shelled sunflower seeds

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup raw honey

1/4 cup ghee or coconut oil

1 cup raisins

1 teaspoon fine sea salt


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees.

Line a 9-by-13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.

Place almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and coconut flakes in a food processor or blender and pulse a few times to break into chunks.

In a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the honey, ghee, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine, then add the nut mixture and stir until completely coated.

Spread granola mixture evenly on the prepared baking sheet and cook for about 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned, stirring once or twice.

Remove the granola from the oven, add the raisins and sprinkle with salt.

Press down on top of the granola to create a flat surface. Store in an airtight container
