Granola

5. February, 2017

Most of the granola you can buy at the supermarket is either expensive, or full of sugars, so I started making my own at home with ingredients that are nutritious.

And another great thing about it is that it’s so adjustable you can replace almost any ingredient. You don’t like walnuts? Replace them with any other nut, maybe you like peanuts, or macadamia nuts? If you are not a fan of flax, or pumpkin seeds, just leave them out. For a vegan version of this granola just replace honey with agave, or maple syrup.
You get the idea.

These are just versions of granola that I enjoy, but really feel free to experiment and find what you fancy the most.

It’s crunchy, sweet and nutritious.
My favorite way to eat it is for breakfast with some almond milk. It’s also great for when you get a sugar craving.

Ingredients

200 g oats
40 g coconut oil
80 g honey or agave/maple syrup
50 g walnuts
35 g almonds
25 g pumpkin seeds
25 g flax seeds
25 g sunflower seeds
25 g sesame seeds
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
80 g coconut shreds
140 g dried cranberries

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180℃ and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Stir together everything except coconut oil, honey, coconut shreds and cranberries. Melt the coconut oil with honey and pour over the oats mixture. Give everything a thorough mix, lay on the baking sheet and bake for 15-17 min, or until granola is a golden brown color, as you can see on the pictures.

If you like big chunks in your granola, let it cool on the baking tray without mixing. If not, then stir the granola a few times while cooling.

Add the coconut shreds and cranberries, mix, and enjoy :)!
