Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

Lately I've been able to drink kefir, so having this granola topped with that stuff is like a vacation back to regular food land.
I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does!
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup coconut flakes or shreds
1/2 cup honey, warmed
Pinch of salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 TBSP. vanilla extract
1 cup dried fruit (cut up if large)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet. Mix all ingredients EXCEPT dried fruit. Toss well. Spread on baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven and stir in dried fruit. Continue to stir every few minutes during cooling process as well.
When it is cool, it will be deliciously crunchy.
Note: I did not soak these seeds, as I can digest seeds alright without soaking. I'm sure it would be delicious with soaked and dehydrated seeds too.
