You’ll need:
3 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of coconut flakes (or threads)
½ cup of sunflower seeds
½ cup of pumpkin seeds
½ cup of hazelnuts, walnuts or a combination of the two
2 tablespoons of cacao powder

½ teaspoon of sea salt

For the paste:
1 cup of pitted dates 
2 tablespoons of almond butter
2 tablespoons of hulled tahini
 
To make:
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius. 
 
Soak the pitted dates in two cups of hot water for five minutes. Remove the dates and reserve the water they have been soaking in. Add the dates to a blender with three tablespoons of the date water, the tahini and almond butter. Blend until the mixture turns into a thick, caramel-like paste. Add more date water if necessary to achieve the desired consistency.  
 
Mix all the dried ingredients together in a bowl, add the paste and mix with a wooden spoon or spatula until well blended.  
 
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Spread the granola evenly over the tray. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, stir and place back into the oven for another 10 minutes. 
 
Remove from the oven, cool and store in an airtight container.
 
Serve with fresh fruit, yoghurt and Bestow Beauty Plus Oil.
