Smart Sweet: Gluten-Free Coco-Nut Seed Crunch

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

This recipe was inspired by a Sarah Wilson’s creation called coco-nutty granola. As soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to make it and I would change it around to suit my own desires and ideas. This is a muesli/granola recipe that can be eaten like any muesli with a nut or coconut milk or with a dollop of coconut or greek yogurt and/or some sliced fruit. This recipe is very moreish and you will love it! Cooking the mixture is certainly an option but I haven’t tried it raw, I love the crunchy texture that the cooking gives it.
