Snack Recipe: Coconut Cardamom Granola


Heading out for a hike now that the sun is shining and flowers are blooming around every turn? You need a delicious power snack to fuel your adventures, and this granola recipe is the best! Spicy, sweet, and salty with a hint of honey and maple syrup paired with cardamom, vanilla, cinnamon, and coconut, the flavor reminds me of these delicious chai oatmeal cookies, but with healthy nuts and seeds. Make a big batch for camping trips, picnics, or those afternoon munchies.  


Coconut Cardamom Granola


2 cups organic whole oats

1 cup organic coconut flakes

1 cup organic pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup organic whole almonds

1/3 cup organic hemp seeds

1/3 cup raw local honey

1/4 cup organic virgin coconut oil, melted

2 Tbsp organic maple syrup

1 ½ tsp organic cardamom powder

1 tsp organic cinnamon powder

1/2 tsp organic vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together all of the wet ingredients. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix until evenly coated. Spread mixture out in a large pan and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes until the coconut flakes begin to toast and turn brown. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
