My friend gave me this recipe from her Gaps Diet. She gave me a sample to try and then I went and bought everything to make it. Very important to have a silicon insert for the cookie sheet. If you don’t you won’t get it unstuck from the cookie sheet to eat. As it cooks it is sticky.

It is a really tasty snack and good for you!

I did double the recipe. If you do a single recipe, it is full cookie sheet. Remember to stay on the silicone mat.

1/2 cup of honey

1 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut

1 cup of sunflower seeds

1 cup of pumpkin seeds

1 Tbsp cinnamon (more or less to taste to taste)

1 Tbsp vanilla (more or less to taste)

1 cup dried fruit of choice (I found fabulous dried figs at Costco and ordered dates from The Nutty Guys) And I used a very full cup of each because I doubled the recipe.

Mix all dry ingredients and leave the dried fruit out.

On the stove warm the honey, add vanilla and then mix the dried ingredients (no fruit)

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. When you pull it out of the oven, mix in the dried fruit.

Add chopped nuts, ground flax seed, sesame seeds, chia, etc. I added Macadamia nuts, almonds, chia and ground flax seed.

Here is the silicone mat I got at a kitchen store, just fresh out of the oven, minus the granola 😀
