I make it my practice to only eat as natural of foods as I can. But a lot of times people get stuck or are in a a position where they are in the process of moving away from all those processed foods treats. Many say, “what do I eat for a treat now that I can't eat…doughnuts or granola bars?” Granola bars where perceived as healthy because they have been marketed to us as that, but in hind site they damage the intestinal track and are most like made from GMO foods.
This is a great treat you can make use almond milk or any other type of milk to make a healthy cereal alternative without using those process food products that add just the right amount of sugar to get you addicted to it, to become one of their food users. Sort of sounds like a drug user, well that is the whole plan but I am getting off on a tangent right now. Stay tuned for article of how the big food manufacturers have hi-jacked the processed food market.
Paleo Granola Yummy Treat
Here it is used this great recipe to tame that craving for something sweet. Don't feel bad we all have a craving for sweets it a natural part of our make up.
+1 cup sliced almonds
+1 cup pumpkin seeds
+1 cup cashew (only add this if you want, I reduce nut intake because I keep nut consumption low)
+¼ cup sunflower seeds, shelled
+½ cup pecans, chopped
+½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
+½ cup coconut oil (or other oil)
+½ cup raw honey
+¼ cup maple syrup
+1 cup dried raisins OR blueberries OR cranberries OR any dried fruit you want
+1 tablespoon cinnamon
+1 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2. Add all ingredients to a large microwavable bowl, except the fruit.
3. Mix well. If the honey is thick, heat up on the stove, avoid using the microwave because it kills all the good nutritional benefits of food and gives off horrible EMF's, and mix well.
4. Place on a baking sheet (use parchment paper for easy clean up).
5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally to help it not burn.
6. When you pull it out of the oven, mix in dried fruit. Let cool.
Now you are ready to GO!! A healthy treat that you know is nutritionally good for you and you know exactly where all the ingredients came from. Made with Love and care which will also enhance the nutritional value of the food ;-D
