Cereal - Nut Granola - Paleo

One of the biggest things I miss with my new eating lifestyle is CEREAL.  Good old fashion shredded mini wheat or Rice Chex.  Corn Flakes, Fruity Pebbles, Lucky Charms.  OMG  I miss Cereal.

In the never ending search I have come across a few good replacements.  This one so far is my favorite.  It serves the crunchy mushy consistency of most good cereals.  It was good in a bowl of almond milk or just munching it by itself.  My co-worker had some in her yogurt. 

This will become a staple in the clean eating/paleo kitchen.

1 C sunflower seeds - raw
1 C Coconut Flakes - unsweetened
1 C unsalted Walnuts
1/4 C Dried Cranberries
2 TBLS almond butter
1/4 C Honey - raw
1/4 C Coconut Flour
Coconut oil to grease pan

Mix all ingredients until well blended and coated.  Then add to glass baking dish greased with coconut oil. Bake about 30 min until dark and baked through. let Cool a good 30 minutes then break apart.

I used cranberries.  I bet any dried fruit would be good.  Or mix it up with a couple different ones mixed in.  I didn't have coconut flakes just shredded.  I would defiantly use flakes next time.
