pistachio goji berry granola

Okay, so this stuff. It's totally addicting and delicious! I already have a problem with pistachios, in that I cannot. stop. eating. them. Add in beautiful goji berries and yummy toasted coconut? I'm a goner. 

I sent a jar of this goodness over to Julianne for this month's Leftovers Club. Be sure to check out the other goodies for this month below, and join us in the fun next month! 

Pistachio Goji Berry Granola (from Love & Lemons)
yields 2 cups

you'll need:
1 cup rolled oats (not instant)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon coconut oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 cup shelled pistachios, roughly chopped
1/4 cup coconut flakes
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup goji berries

Heat a large skillet over low heat. Add the oats in one thin layer in the pan. Toast for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the coconut oil and salt. Toast for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the maple syrup 1 tablespoon at a time. Once the oats are toasted, add the pistachios, coconut flakes, and cinnamon. Toast for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from the pan and stir in the goji berries. Allow to cool completely.

  1. I love pistachios too... it's their saltiness! Great idea to pair with sweet flavors like coconut and cinnamon to offset that salt, too. Yum!

  2. I would eat this entire jar-- wow!

  3. This sounds DELISH! I LOVE pistachios and coconut!

  4. As the recipient, I can vouch for the awesomeness of this granola -- thanks, Marie!

  5. How absolutely gorgeous is this? I think it's the prettiest jar of granola I've clapped my eyes in on a long while. Oh yeah, and pistachios - major addiction here too.

  6. That looks amazing. I'm sure if I got a hold of it, it would be gone in a day! Looks very addicting. ;-)

  7. This sounds amazing! I love pistachios. I can't remember the last time I made homemade granola. I love the sound of those dumplings you made, too. Mmm bourbon.

  8. I love the vibrant colors of this granola! Definitely giving this a try the next time I make granola!

  9. OMG, I love this granola too! I had just made a big batch and that is what I sent to Naina who I was paired with. I eat more pistachios than any other nut too and toasted coconut is a food group I recipe, I love it too. Maybe we will match up again and you can always send me some of your granola!! Have a great weekend.

  10. What an awesome thing to receive in the mail! I think it would be pretty dangerous to have around - I'd be digging in for a handful every couple of hours. :)

  11. I would be gobbling this down by the handful! LARGE handfuls.
