  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs unsweetened
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon extract


  • Preheat oven to 325°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, chia seeds, sea salt, and cinnamon.
  • In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk the coconut oil, maple syrup, and cinnamon extract.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the large bowl and stir until all the dry ingredients are coated.
  • Spread the granola evenly on the baking sheet, spreading it out as much as possible.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until the granola begins to brown slightly. Remove from oven and allow to cool before transferring to a jar for storage.


The granola will not be crisp as soon as it come out of the oven, but will be as it cools.
