Humble Hippie Granola | The Bohemian Baker

Today’s post comes from our favourite health nut, Ange Peters…you can find her here over at Hol: Fit

This is a bit of Ange’s story, taken from her website:
“My Father died of cancer when I was 10 and then 6 years later my sister died of Leukemia. Going through these experiences at such a young age caused me to see how important it is to take the best care possible of my health. We’ve all heard the saying that “knowledge is power” and the way I take that is that it’s so important that we are our own HEALTH ADVOCATES. There is no doctor, government agency or politician that is really looking to give you the best life you can have. You have to educate yourself & ask the right questions because there is always ways to be better….to live your best life!”

Now for the FOOD!

Before you can change the world…you should probably eat a decent breakfast.
As a health nut & foodie, there are 3 criteria a recipe must meet in order for me to take it ‘off the pan & into the world’

  • it must be nourishing to my senses & my cells
  • it must look pretty
  • and it must absolutley be worth sharing

Well my fellow adventrure seekers, I am about to introduce you to the last granola recipe you will ever need.

HUMBLE HIPPIE GRANOLA
the humbleness of this granola is due to all the superfood goodness that lies in such a simple looking mason jar of goodness. If this granola could talk it would say “eat me and expect miracles”…

1 cup flaked oats
1 cup uncooked buckwheat groats
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 cup raw almonds, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/4 cup raw walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup goji berries
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup melted coconut oil

Method:
Set oven to 225
As oven is warming up, place coconut oil in a glass measuring cup inside the oven to liquify it

In large mixing bowl, combine everything except for the maple syrup & coco oil. Mix well

Mix maple syrup into melted coconut oil. Pour over dry ingredients.

Spread onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 60 minutes. During this time, reflect upon the people in your life that you’d like to gift with some Humble Hippie Granola. You know the ones….they inspire greatness into your life.

Get out about 4 mason jars {as boho babes – we love to re-use glass jars for just this purpose}. Take your awesome creation out of the oven & let cool down before breaking off into pieces into the jars.

Best served over a dollop of coconut mylk yogurt with chopped organic apple & a big mug of chai rooibos tea.

  1. This recipe is so delicious. Mine also did not harden – which could be from two reasons – I used honey instead of maple syrup and I also soaked my nuts and seeds so they were a bit damp. I don’t think much of the recipe is going to make it into a jar before it cools down.

    Hi Ange – had the same question as Teodora… do you soak the groats/quinoa before mixing in??? Thanks!

  3. Greetings! I’ve been reading your site for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Dallas Tx! Just wanted to mention keep up the excellent job!

  4. Teri Watt says:

    I am also wondering if you soak the nuts and oats before mixing?

  5. Question: what would you suggest for a diabetic? until we get to the maple syrup, this recipe seems good as far as glycemic. Am working with a few clients who have diabetes, and have extremely busy lives. This seems like a great option for a take along snack. thanks and love your website

    Hi Ange,
    I want to ask if you soaked your ingredients before the mixing?
    Thank you,
    Teo

    This is Deeeelicious!!! Thanks so much for sharing. If I could, I’d gift you with a jar of this yumminess, because you’ve inspired greatness in My life with this recipe!
    Much love!
    :)
    PS – Pure organic Maple Syrup has SO much goodness – I encourage you gals to use it, unless of course there’s an allergy.

  8. my kitchen is currently filled with super yum smell of this granola!! only issue is… i’m in nz and we use celcius… and without thinking about the conversion from fahrenheit (long day at work, what can i say?!), but noting that cooking anything at 225 deg C (ie 437 fahrenheit!!) is a bit much, i bunged it in the oven… it was in for only twenty minutes!! hoping it is salvageable, smells amazing but looking a little black…

    either way i’m looking forward to my next batch! thanks BD and Ange :)

  9. I made the granola but it did not come out in hardened pieces …. I baked at 225 for an hour as directed or am I supposed to increase the temperature?

    It is yummy regardless. :)

    Any idea on how long it lasts and should we store it in the fridge?

    • Hey trailmomma!
      I’m not sure why that would’ve happened – perhaps a difference in the strength of your oven? Did you use pure maple syrup?
      Yes – store it in the fridge in airtight mason jars to make it last…not that it really will 😉

  10. I have to try this! Can you use agave instead of the maple syrup??
