Instructions
 

Almond Granola Cups

  • Preheat oven to 340 °F and lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix the oats, hemp hearts, shredded coconut, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • In another medium sized mixing bowl, combine almond butter, sorghum syrup, coconut oil, and almond extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix well.
  • Evenly divide ¼ cup of the dough to each section of the muffin tin. Use the back of a teaspoon to gently press the batter against the bottom and sides of each cup. Don’t worry if it is crumbly.
  • Refrigerate for 15 minutes so the dough will bind, then use the back of a teaspoon to gently press the batter against the bottom and sides of each cup again.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Let sit for 30 minutes, and then gently remove them from the muffin tin with a butter knife.

Sorbet

  • Add the strawberries, balsamic vinegar, sorghum syrup, and vanilla extract to a high-speed blender
  • Turn blender on and slowly increase speed for 30-60 seconds. Add water if the mixture is too thick. Do not over mix.
  • Scoop the blended mixture into the granola cups, and serve.
