Note 1: We have been loving this granola for a while now. As we love it so much, we wanted to make it even healthier by adding some more “Super Ingredients.” We found these ingredients made it even tastier.
At #6 in the recipe, when you add the second half of shredded coconut, also add:

– 1 Tbsp. Flaxseed meal

– 1 Tbsp. Lucuma powder

– 2 Tbsp. Chia seeds

All of the above add antioxidants and fiber to the granola. Also, Lucuma powder adds subtle fruityness to the flavor. Do not bake too long after you add Lucuma powder as the subtle ‘tropical’ flavor goes away if you heat too long.

Note 2: Feel free to add your favorite dried fruit. Here we added chopped dried figs. When you chop them, carefully remove the hard stem still on the figs. Dried figs are as sweet as dates, but less sugar with more fiber and micronutrients, such as pottasium, calcium, and magnesium. Below is the comparison of the popular dried fruits that we found at https://valleyfig.com/health-nutrition/
