  • 4 cups of assorted nuts
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup of dried fruit (dates, raisin, etc.)
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. sea salt


  1. Soak the nuts overnight in warm water with the salt.
  2. Drain the nuts and rinse them well in a colander.
  3. Place the nuts on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  4. Roast the nuts in a preheated oven at 150 F. for 10 to 12 hours.
  5. Cool the nuts completely before using.
  6. Roughly chop half the nuts using a rolling pin or a knife.
  7. Place the other half of the nuts in a food processor and pulse until you get a soft powder (it will almost be pasty.)
  8. In a small saucepan placed over a medium low heat, add the coconut oil, almond butter, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. Heat until bubbles start to form, and then remove from the heat.
  9. In a large bowl, mix the chopped nuts, ground nuts, dried fruit, and almond butter mixture until everything is well combined.
  10. Pour the nut mixture into a dish covered with parchment paper and firmly pack the granola mixture tightly, making a single clean layer.
  11. Cover with another piece of parchment paper and let sit for 1 or 2 hours at room temperature.
  12. Place in the freezer for another hour.
  13. Slice the granola into equal rectangular pieces and serve. Keep the leftovers in the refrigerator.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
