2cupsunsweetened shredded coconut1/2 cup unsulfured, dried apricots1/2 cup unsweetened, dried pineapple1/2 cup organic tigernuts, whole or sliced1/8-1/4 cup pure maple syrup2 servings Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides1 teaspoon ground cinnamon1 teaspoon ground ginger1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Chop apricots, pineapple, and tigernuts into bite sized pieces.
In a large bowl, combine coconut, collagen, apricots, pineapple, and tigernuts.
Add maple syrup (1/8 -1/4 cup depending on personal preference), cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, and sea salt. Stir with a rubber spatula until the coconut and fruit are well coated.
Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for about 13-15 minutes, stirring after about 7 minutes of baking time. Remove from oven when the coconut flakes are golden brown.
Let cool on baking sheet. The coconut flakes will crisp and form larger clumps as they cool.
Enjoy as a handful of granola, or in a bowl with coconut milk and an extra sprinkle of cinnamon.
Great Lakes brand collagen can be substituted for the Vital Proteins brand. For Great Lakes, use 1/4 cup.
