As we explore holistic health, we wanted to highlight our dear friend, LA-based, functional nutritionist, Mia Rigden of The Rasa Life.
"What you put in your body has a profound impact on your life, which goes far beyond your love handles and laboratory results−from your mood to relationships, career, and so much more, a nutrient-rich diet will help you connect with your body and live a happier, fuller, more productive life: this is the RASA life!”
To celebrate healthy skin, good food and high vibes, we co-created a super yummy, unique granola recipe that incorporates skin-supportive ingredients you'll find in our product line (ie. turmeric, sea buckthorn, rosehip...). Our 🌸Flower Child Granola🌸 is delicious, nutritious and fun to eat - the hibiscus flowers will turn your milk pink.
RECIPE: FLOWER CHILD GRANOLA
Time: 50 minutes
4 cups of nuts/seeds (almonds, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, cashews, hazelnuts)
1 cup coconut flakes
¼ cup sea buckthorn
¼ cup cacao nibs
¼ cup rosehip (soaked for 1 hour)
¼ cup hibiscus (soaked for 1 hour)
¼ cup goji berries (soaked for 1 hour)
2 tbsp sesame seeds
½ cup ground flax
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup honey
½ cup coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add dry ingredients (nuts, seeds, salt, turmeric and botanicals) to a bowl and mix. Next, add honey, coconut oil and vanilla to a small sauce pan and whisk to combine. Pour mixture over dry ingredients, and stir to coat, then spread granola out on your baking sheet and sprinkle with maldon sea salt.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until browned and fragrant. Check the oven 25 minutes in, and give your granola a good stir.
When your granola is finished let chill completely to set. Store in an airtight container for 7-10 days.
