I love the chocolate Bare Naked brand granola but I obviously can’t eat the grains any more. This is my attempt to create my own version. It came out really good! I had to cut the batch in half to add a little more honey to it so it would be sweet enough for the kids.


  • 1/2 raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup slivered or chopped almonds
  • 1/2 chopped pecans
  • 1/2 chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup ground flax seed meal
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 4 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey (or a little more depending on your taste remember it will taste less sweet fully cooked)
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 2 wisked egg whites
  • 1 cup banana chips broken up
  • (optional raw cocao nibs or organic dark chocolate chips)

Most of the dry ingredients are flexible. You can use what ever nuts you like etc.

Pre heat oven to 325

Mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl including the salt and mix well.

In a smaller bowl melt the coconut oil and mix in the honey, vanilla and egg whites.  

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. Taste for sweetness. If you want it a bit sweeter drizzle a bit more honey or maybe some liquid stevia or coconut crystals (whatever paleo friendly sweetener you like) and mix well again. Pour mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Spread evenly in a thin layer and bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes remove from oven and stir well to break up pieces and avoid burning. Pop tray back in the oven for 5-10 more minutes. Be careful not to over cook. The mixture will get crunchy as it cools. Once out of the oven and cooled add the banana chips or anything else you might want to add. Once it is completely cool store in an airtight container. I found these great glass bottles and containers at Sur La Table. This one was $5. Great with almond or coconut milk or with berries or yogurt (see coconut milk yogurt recipe)
