Hemp Granola (makes 2 cups)

- 1/4 t Vanilla Extract

- In order to make this for breakfast the next day, I would recommend making the granola the night before.
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
- To make granola, mix dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients and mix until covered.
- Spread in a single layer on a sprayed baking sheet.
- Toast in preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours, mixing every 30 minutes to toast it evenly.
- A few minutes before the granola is done, make your smoothie (or alternatively, heat up the granola in the oven or microwave before serving).
- Mix smoothie ingredients in blender until smooth.
- Spoon 1/8 of the smoothie into a bowl, top with 1/4 C granola, fruit, coconut, almond butter (HIGHLY recommended), or other healthy fruit and nut toppings. Repeat for the rest of the servings.

I have fallen in love with Healeo. Neenah, Nadia, and I ran there a few Saturdays ago and it was 100% worth the 6.6 mile trip. I got the Heavenly Hemp Smoothie and I’m hoping they will be in heaven too, because it was amazing. We split the Acai Bowl, and I decided I needed to make one at home because I didn’t feel like going on another run to Capitol Hill. This recipe is based off of the ingredients of the Acai Bowl, which are “Acai, banana & soymilk blended thick, then topped with hemp granola, berries, and/or superfood toppings.”
Honestly I only had a pack of hemp oats because my friend gave it to me to try, so that’s how I made my granola. It only makes 2 cups worth, but since you are using only 1/4 cup per serving, I just doubled the recipe to fit the 8 servings of granola. If you are making just one serving, it is 1 banana, 1/2 C milk and 1/2 C frozen fruit.
If you have at least 1 1/4 C of shelled hemp seeds, then make this recipe that makes 10 cups so you can have more to store! If you don’t have 3 hours, you might want to just make the above smoothie and top with store bought granola and your toppings of choice. Healeo had amazing toppings like goji berries, acai berries, cacoa nibs, mulberries, shredded coconut, flax seeds, etc., but I tried it with sliced banana, shredded coconut, and almond butter and it was 10x tastier with the almond butter. Those fancy acai and goji berries are expensive..
