Grain Free Granola

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds roughly chopped
  • 1 cup pepitas roughly chopped
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut optional, reserved

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen berries


Grain Free Granola

  1. Preheat the oven to 300F/150C and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a baking sheet that has a lip if you have one so that the granola can be spread more easily.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sunflower seeds, pepita seeds, shredded coconut, and salt. In a smaller dish, whisk together the maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla. Add the maple syrup mixture to the seed mixture and stir until fully incorporated.
  3. Spread the granola onto the prepared pan, getting an even layer if possible. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden. Stir in the reserved 1/2 cup flaked coconut. Let the granola cool completely in the pan, and then store in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to a month.

  1. In a jar or a container with a lid, mix all of the chia pudding ingredients (leave out the berries) and refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight. Stir before serving.

  2. Assemble the parfaits right before serving them. To assemble, layer glasses or jars with a couple of tablespoons of chia pudding, then granola, then a handful of berries. Repeat this until the container you've chosen is full. It doesn't matter what order you do it in, just try to finish with berries to make it pretty.
