My Favourite Granola

Hey guys!

So I always loved granola and I was extremely disappointed when I found out that the majority of commercially bought granolas are full of nasty ingredients – as the base is a pretty healthy one – oats, nuts and seeds – so I decided to start making my own – I generally use the same basic recipe and then just add something different depending what I have in the house! The following is the recipe I generally use:

1 cup wholemeal oats

1 tbsp coconut oil/any other oil hat hasn’t got a strong flavor – I have also found peanut oil works pretty well

1 tbsp cacao powder

2 tbsp almonds

2 tbsp mixed seeds (I get a mix which contains sunflower and pumpkin seeds with a few pine nuts)

1 tbsp raw honey (or agave nectar if you prefer this but I find honey gives that nice sticky texture)

Instructions

  1.  Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl (this is where you can add some dried fruits or different nuts of your choice – sometimes I like to add pecans or dates)
  2. Once all the dry ingredients are mixed in well together add the honey and coconut oil (melted) and mix everything to an even consistency once again.
  3. then place the mixture on a tray lined with baking paper and place in a preheated oven at 180Β°C for approximately 10 minutes until the mixture is a bit toasted but not burnt.
  4. Finally remove from the oven and leave to cool – once the mixture has cooled I usually place them in mason jars or containers, refrigerate and then use as required!

I love to add this to my greek yoghurt in the morning or just use it as a sweet snack when I am craving something sweet – Hope you like the recipe and let me know if you try it out and any nice additions you may come up with!
