|Plant based Granola, before baking|
I bought a lot of PB2 powder and wanted to use it in an energy snack that didn't have too much sugar or fats.
Preheat oven to 275 degrees fahrenheit
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup PB2 powdered peanut butter, I used the cocoa flavored variety
2/3 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes or shreds
1/3 cup raw almonds, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup dried blueberries
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
2 tablespoons oat bran
1/4 cup wheat bran
Stir together and then add wet ingredients as a drizzle while you continue stirring:
Combine 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup coconut oil and 1/4 cup applesauce for wet ingredients.
Raw granola will seem fairly dry but wet enough to incorporate all those dry ingredients as you continue stirring for a minute or so.
Spread out on cookie sheet covered with lightly oiled parchment.
Bake for 1 hour at 300 degrees fahrenheit
