Lentil Granola

Ingredients

  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees C.
  • Add the lentils into a pot of boiling water. Cook for 5 minutes. They go a little see-through. Drain and spread out on a tray to cool. You'll need to wait a while before the next step.
  • Combine the honey, coconut oil and cinnamon in pot and put on a low heat. When melted together, take off the heat and stir in the cooled lentils.
  • Spread the mixture out onto two baking trays lined with cooking parchment and cook for 15 minutes.
  • Add the chopped almonds, stir well and continue cooking. You need to stir them every every 15 mins, for about 1 - 1½ hours, until they turn brown and crispy. I know... effort but worth it.
  • Add the coconut, flaked almonds and seeds and cook for a final 5 minutes.
  • When cooled, store in an airtight container.
