This is not my recipe, but I forgot what blog it came from!!! I took the original (which was Granola Bites) and changed it a bit and it turned out really yummy. See note about oatmeal substitution.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 34 cup sunflower seeds (raw)
  • 1 12 cups coconut flakes
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 12 cups pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 14 cup cocoa
  • 12 cup melted coconut oil
  • 14 cup vegetable glycerin (food grade)
  • 25 drops chocolate-flavored liquid stevia
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • cinnamon (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients; combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing really well to coat.
  4. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread the granola evenly. Bake for 20-30 minutes, stirring half way through.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool; store in an airtight container.
  6. NOTE: You can sub up to 1-1/2 cups of oats for any of the nuts or seeds. That makes it not grain free then.
