    Fairly new here. Enjoying the great recipes, so I thought I'd share. Hopefully, this is OK. I read through the guidelines and it said it was OK as long as I posted the full recipe and nutritional facts in the comments. I'm new to Reddit in general, so I don't really "get" the whole "flair" thing. It said to add appropriate tags, but I don't know exactly what that is. I'll try and read some more "general" Reddit info to see if it explains it. Also, I managed to get the nutrition facts to do "bulleted" format, but, doing the same thing for the ingredients list doesn't seem to work. How can I format it better for you guys? Nutrition Facts - Amount Per Serving Calories 345, Calories from Fat 288 - Total Fat 32g 49% - Saturated Fat 7.6g 38% - Total Carbohydrates 9.4g 3% - Dietary Fiber 4.6g 18% - Sugars 2.3g - Protein 9.4g 19% - Sodium 23mg 1% - Potassium 148mg 4% INGREDIENTS - 1/2 cup Coconut - Shredded or flaked depending on preference, - 120 grams Raw Shelled Hemp Hearts - I used Manitoba Harvest, - 1 1/4 cups Raw Pecans Chopped - or 1.5 cups halves, - 1 1/4 cups Raw Almonds - Slivered are best but whole or chopped would work, - 1 cup Raw Walnuts - Chopped or whole, - 1/4 cup Raw Pumpkin Seed Kernels, - 2-3 tsp Ground Cinnamon, - 15 grams Powdered Erythritol - About 5 teaspoons or so, - 1/3 tsp Sea Salt - I use pink Himalayan, - 1/4 gram Stevia Powder - About 3-4 tiny scoops - depending upon preference, - 1/4 cup Coconut Oil - Preferably extra virgin, - 1 tsp Raw Honey - Gives just a hint of "natural" sweetness, - 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract - Pure - sugar free - alcohol based, - 1 tsp Maple extract - Really gives a terrific taste/smell INSTRUCTIONS - Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. - Melt your coconut oil in a small bowl in the microwave or in a small pot on the stove if you like. Mix in raw honey, vanilla and maple extract and set aside. - Mix all dry ingredients in a larger mixing bowl. - Blend in your coconut oil mix and stir really well. - Lastly, pour the contents onto a baking pan/sheet. You can grease it or use a silicone baking mat if you like, but it likely won't be necessary with the coconut oil. - Place in your pre-heated oven and bake for about 20 - 30 minutes, depending upon how "crispy" you want your granola. You may want to "mix" your granola at the 15 minute mark to make sure it cooks through. RECIPE NOTES Consider including 2-3 tablespoons of chia meal/flour when mixing your dry ingredients. Then, before incorporating your coconut oil, add a few tablespoons of water and mix well. The chia and water will "gel", causing everything to stick together just a bit. Once you bake it, the gel will dry out and the granola will hold together a bit better. I like using chia meal better than chia seeds. If you have a high powered blender, you can easily blend chia seed into meal. But, if you want to use the seeds whole, it will still work. Just takes a few extra minutes to "gel up". Don't Forget the Mix-Ins Feel free to add a few berries, raisins, dried cranberries, etc. but add them to each serving independently. Otherwise, the moisture in the fruit will make the granola go soft. Also, as mentioned earlier, pay attention to how your additions change your carb counts and overall keto macros.
