Wheat Belly Recipe - Homemade Granola
This delicious homemade Granola recipe comes courtesy of the Wheat Belly Cookbook. My choice cook book of the moment.

I am trying this wheat free diet and so far so good. That means that this recipe is grain free but it is still filling with all those nuts and seeds.

I used maple syrup which I know the good doctor disapproves of but not so much that he does recommend it in other recipes.

Anyway the syrup he suggests for this homemade granola recipe is hazelnut syrup which you can get in major supermarkets in the coffee section. I thought it would be impossible to find so didn't even bother. My mistake.

This is incredibly delicious especially with the maple syrup it gives this homemade granola a delicious sweet flavour and toasting it is genius. It's incredibly tasty. I have mine with almond milk. Divine.

Homemade Granola Recipe

1 cup raw cashew pieces
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1 cup shredded coconut
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

In a large bowl combine cashews, pumpkin seeds, almonds, chia seeds, coconut and cinnamon.

Add the oil and syrup and mix until well combined.

Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet in a 1cm or 1/2 inch thick layer.
