BRANOLA

Prep Time: 15 minutes // Bake Time: 30 minutes

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Thaw bagel according to package directions and cut into very small pieces (approx ¼ inch).
  3. Add bagels, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, and oats to a mixing bowl.
  4. Add avocado oil and sugar to a small sauce pot. Heat over medium low until the oil is melted and sugar starts to combine.*
  5. Once melted, pour into mixing bowl and toss all ingredients with a spatula to combine.
  6. Pour in an even layer on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes and then gently stir.
  9. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  10. Be careful not to over bake, or the bagels will become too crunchy. They will continue to harden/dry slightly after removing from the oven. *If you use organic white cane sugar it will not melt into the oil and you will get a crunchy sugar texture as pictured in photos. If you use brown sugar it will be a smoother mixture. Recipe courtesy of @GlutenfreeJess.
