Granola

Hey my dear readers. I’m sorry I disappeared for a while but I’ve been busy with life. I’ve got my little sisters staying over for a while and I’ve been working extra hours.

Today I’m going to post easy recipe. That’s the way I like as I don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen

This recipe is healthy GRANOLA.  You’d have thought that any granola is healthy because that’s what media’s been telling us for ages. The problem is that you don’t really know what they add to it, that’s why the best option is to make it yourself.

I made granola with different ingredients but they all taste amazing and I couldn’t decide which one to post. So my advice is to add what you like. If you like raising make sure raisings are there. If you don’t or you allergic to nuts, don’t add them etc.

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups Oats
  • 1 cup Nuts (pick your favourite)
  • 1 cup Desiccated Coconut
  • 50 g Sunflower Seeds
  • ½ Cacao Nibs (opt)
  • ¼ Coconut Oil
  • ¼ Maple or Agave Syrup (or more if you like it sweet)
  • 1 tbsp. Vanilla Powder
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • ¾ cup Raisins or Dried Fruits

Heat the oven to 150C and arrange a rack in the middle.

Place the oats, nuts, coconut,  seeds and cacao nibs in a large bowl and stir to combine; set aside.

Place the oil, agave syrup, vanilla and salt in a small bowl and stir to combine. Pour over the oat mixture and mix until the oats are thoroughly coated.

mixing

Spread the mixture in a thin, even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir and continue baking until the granola is very light golden brown, about 5 to 15 minutes more.

Ready to bake

Place the baking sheet on a wire rack and cool the granola to room temperature, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. ( It will harden as it cools.)

Add the raisings to the baking sheet and toss to combine. Store the granola in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

 Just a little portion will get you through the morning, so enjoy!!!
