Eating Green with Chef Jordan Wagman - Episode 3 - Kick Ass Granola
Welcome to Eating Green, a cooking show hosted by Chef Jordan Wagman where we redefine Cannabis infused food. Our goal is to teach everyone how to make infused and non infused food using very few ingredients.
Today Chef Jordan Wagman will be making Kick Ass Granola, simply the greatest granola you will ever make and eat. It’s the perfect snack in the morning, noon and night! The secret to this recipe is the second toasting, allowing the maple syrup to reduce and become candy-like!

2 cups (500 mL) unsweetened shredded coconut
2 cups (500 mL) cacao nibs
