Passover Power Granola

Sorry, but I have to say it every year: DO NOT BUY PACKED PASSOVER FOOD!

While all processed food is basically crap, the stuff they make specifically for Passover is often even worse.  Not only that, but its ridiculously expensive and tastes like shit.

Do yourself a favour and make your own Passover eats.  We only buy the whole wheat matzo and whole wheat matzo meal and that's about it!

If you like cereal or granola for breakfast, I know that it can be hard to just eat matzo.  I don't recommend it anyways, its just empty carbs that will leave you feeling famished and sluggish in a few hours.

This granola is filled with fibre, protein and nutritious seeds and fruits.  Pair it with some Greek yogurt and maybe some fresh fruit and you'll be sailing through your morning with energy and vitality.

Passover Power Granola

1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp pure, uncut stevia powder (or other sweetener, to taste)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

180g bag plain puffed quinoa
2 tbls whole flax seeds
2 tbls hemp seeds
1 tbls chia seeds
1 scoop vanilla hemp protein powder (like this one)

1 cup mixed dried fruit (unsweetened) and pumpkin/sunflower seeds (I used this)

Place oil, apple sauce, vanilla, stevia, cinnamon and salt in small pot and warm over medium heat until oil is completely melted.

Place dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir.  Pour wet ingredients over top and mix well.  Spread evenly on non-stick baking sheet and bake at 350F for 30 minutes, stirring twice.  Let cool and stir in fruits and seeds.  Store in an airtight container.
