Or, Hemp-anola, as Dreena Burton calls it in her Eat, Drink & Be Vegan book. Jim tried this new granola recipe and it came out wonderfully.
3 C barley flakes
2 C rolled oats
1 1/2 C hemp seed nuts (we find these at Nutri Foods)
1 C chopped pecans
1/2 C sunflower seeds
1/2 C walnuts
1/2 C shredded unsweetened coconut
2/3 C pure maple syrup
1 tsp blackstrap molasses (Nutri Foods)
1 tbsp brown rice syrup (Nutri Foods)
2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
1/3 C water
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In separate bowl, mix 2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal with 1/3 C water. Let sit about 2 minutes, then mix with rest of liquid ingredients. Combine all then pour into a jellyroll pan and bake 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes until golden. The longer you cook it the more crisp it will be but, be careful not to burn it!
When it cools, you can add any dried fruit to it. We like cranberries. Served with soymilk, it’s a nice and quick breakfast.
