Servings 8 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup freeze dried raspberries
  • ¼ cup maple syrup (you can use honey if you prefer)
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon cashew butter
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 325° F
  • Defrost the frozen raspberries by either leaving them in the refrigerator overnight or using the defrost function on your microwave. Once they are defrosted, use a strainer to remove excess liquid.
  • If you are using fresh raspberries, you can skip the defrosting step.
  • Add the raspberries, maple syrup, coconut oil, cashew butter, and almond extract to a medium sized bowl and mix together. If using fresh raspberries, be sure to mash the raspberries while mixing.
  • Add the oats, almonds, salt, and chia seeds to the bowl of wet ingredients and mix together until everything is well coated.
  • Add the granola mixture to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or greased and place in the oven.
  • Every 10 minutes, pull the baking sheet out of the oven and check the granola. Once you see it starting to get a little brown around the edges, stir the granola. Continue doing this every 10 minutes for a total of 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Once all of the granola is light golden, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. The granola will crisp up while cooking.
  • After the granola is cooled, mix in the freeze dried raspberries & enjoy!
