A delicious twist on your classic granola, this baby is gluten, grain, and refined sugar free! Created in partnership with LINNÉ Botanicals using ingredients from the incredible RENEW face serum (one of my all-time favorite products!).
Whether used on your skin or in your breakfast bowl, the ingredients used in this recipe and LINNÉ’s lush face serum have been shown to strengthen capillaries, build collagen, reduce free radical damage, lessen hyperpigmentation and reduce inflammation. The amazing pink tones in the milk come from the wonderful antioxidants found in the rose hip and hibiscus—color = nutrition!
Think it’s weird to eat your beauty products? Think again: if you wouldn’t put it in your mouth, why would you put in on your face? Our skin is our largest organ, and the ingredients used in our beauty products should be treated with the same amount of scrutiny as we do our food.
RECIPE: Flower Child Granola
Time: 50 minutes
4 cups of nuts/seeds (almonds, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, cashews, hazelnuts)
1 cup coconut flakes
¼ cup sea buckthorn
¼ cup cacao nibs
¼ cup rosehip (soaked for 1 hour)
¼ cup hibiscus (soaked for 1 hour)
¼ cup goji berries (soaked for 1 hour)
2 tbsp sesame seeds
½ cup ground flax
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup honey
½ cup coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add dry ingredients (nuts, seeds, salt, turmeric and botanicals) to a bowl and mix. Next, add honey, coconut oil and vanilla to a small sauce pan and whisk to combine. Pour mixture over dry ingredients, and stir to coat, then spread granola out on your baking sheet and sprinkle with maldon sea salt.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until browned and fragrant. Check the oven 25 minutes in, and give your granola a good stir.
When your granola is finished let chill completely to set. Store in an airtight container for 7-10 days.
