Helpful tips
  • You can use any nuts that you like but the ones in this recipe are my go to.
  • Try to get raw, unsalted whenever you can. I buy almost all my nuts/seeds at Trader Joe's.
  • If you can't find unsalted raw nuts and/or seeds, omit the salt in the recipe.
  • After the chocolate sets onto the nuts and granola, I use my hands to break it into different sized clusters.
