It’s not always easy to eat healthy all the time, especially when you’re in a hurry, so it really helps when you plan ahead a little and have a few things made up in advance. This recipe for gluten free, grain free granola is one of those make-ahead items that’s super energizing, tastes great, and contains protein, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. There are two extra and awesome benefits you’re going to get from this recipe: it’s great for your brain and your liver.

 

1 cup shredded coconut

½ cup chopped sliced almonds

½ cup cashew pieces

2 tablespoons flax seeds

1 tablespoon milk thistle powder

1 tablespoon cacao nibs

2 – 4 tablespoons maple syrup, honey, or agave syrup, to taste

½ teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon powder

½ teaspoon ginger powder

1/8 teaspoon sea salt or Himalayan salt

 

Mix ingredients well. Spread on a shallow pan or cookie sheet, and lightly toast in 325˚ oven for 10 to 20 minutes, or until toasted and crunchy but not brown.

 

Put the toasted blend into a large bowl and mix in the following ingredients:

1 tablespoon lecithin granules (optional, but great for your brain)

½ cup dried bilberries

½ cup goji berries
