Carrot Cake Granola

I'm basically obsessed with granola of all kinds! Since homemade is always better,
I decided to try making Carrot Cake Granola for a healthy snack
(and also to use up the carrot pulp left over from juicing).  Delicious and healthy,
enjoy this Food Friday recipe by the handful, with almond milk or on Greek yogurt!


- 3 cups oats
- 1 cup walnuts (chopped)
- 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp carrot pulp (or carrot finely pulsed in a food processor and patted dry)
- 1/4 heaping cup raisins
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/3 cup pure honey
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp vanilla


- preheat oven to 300º
- prepare 2 baking sheets by lining with parchment paper
- in a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (oats, walnuts, carrot pulp, raisins, cinnamon, sea salt)
- in a bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (honey, olive oil, vanilla)
- pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture and still until evenly coated

- in increments, add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir until evenly combined.
- spoon small amounts of batter into the muffin tin until 3/4 full. 
- spread the granola mix onto the baking sheets
- bake for 15 minutes then rotate the pans and bake for another 10-15 minutes
- granola should be lightly brown when removed from the oven and cooled on the pans
