Well, this is not Ricardo’s granola recipe! My recipe has less sugar and more protein because there are only three tablespoons of honey. And it contains more protein because of the nuts and coral lentils.
2 ¼ cups of oatmeal
¼ cup of dried and rinsed coral lentils
¾ cup of water
¼ cup of coconut, slivered almonds, raisins, dried cranberries, dried goji berries (optional), chia seeds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds
½ cup of chopped walnuts and chopped pecans
1 tbsp of coconut oil, melted
3 tbsp of honey
Step by Step Instructions
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C or 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, place the lentils and mix them with the water. Cook for about 5 minutes so that the lentils absorb the water and burst. Drain.
Mix all ingredients except honey. Spread on the baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes. Add honey and stir. Return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
Serve with milk or yogurt and berries. Delicious!
Here is another version.
In this variation, I replaced the pecans with Brazil nuts. After taking them out of the oven, I added about three tablespoons of wheat germ and shelled hemp seeds.
