Pumpkin Spice No-Grain Granola

OH man. I’m IN LOVE! This stuff is so delish. I decided last night to experiment with making my own “granola” sans grains with LOTS of healthy fats and HELLO pumpkin spice {of course you can omit and add whatever spice you prefer. But, come on now…it IS October!}.

I honestly have been just enjoying this by itself. However, do what you like with it. Eat it with some full fat milk of whatever variety {I LOVE cashew milk} or have it on some full fat yogurt OR enjoy with some coconut cream {the canned, thick, delicious stuff}.

INGREDIENTS:
5 Tbsp unsweetened coconut
5 Tbsp sunflower seeds
5 Tbsp hemp seeds {I had never used these and really love their bold, nutty flavor…& they have a TON of healthy fat!}
5 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
3 Tbsp grass fed butter
2 Tbsp erythritol {or sweetener of choice. just adjust amount according to sweetener}
3 Tbsp DARK chocolate {or cocoa nibs}. I use 85% dark chocolate for less sugar/carbs
1 tsp pumpkin spice

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Place all dry ingredients in a med. sized bowl. Mix well. Melt butter and pour over mixture. Mix well again.
Spread granola on a rimmed cookie sheet {parchment paper is great to use if you have it. Just makes it a little less messy and easier to transfer from the cookie sheet}.
Bake 15 minutes or until granola turns golden. Stir a couple of times while baking to make sure granola gets baked evenly.

Cool and enjoy! Keeps well in a mason jar.
