Sweet and nutty grain-free granola made slightly exotic with the flavor of cardamom and figs.
  • 1 cup (110 g) almond meal
  • 1 cup (110 g) raw, unsalted almonds, chopped
  • 1 cup (165 g) good-quality whole dried figs, stems trimmed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup (25 g) ground flaxseed
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons raw local honey
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. Stir together the almond meal, almonds, figs, ground flaxseed, cardamom, and sea salt in a large bowl.
  3. Add the coconut oil and honey to a small saucepan, heat until the coconut oil is melted, and then stir into the almond mixture to coat.
  4. Spread the granola out onto a baking sheet and bake 15 minutes, then give it a stir and bake until golden, about 10 to 15 minutes more.
  5. Turn the oven off, leave the oven door ajar, and leave the granola to sit in the warm oven until completely cool, about 2 hours (the granola will firm up as it cools).
  6. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
