I’m really not a cereal kind of person, I much prefer a cooked breakfast, but when it comes to this granola, I can eat it for days! I was a bit late to the homemade granola game, my sister raved about it, my friends loved it and I was struggling for fast and healthy breakfasts. I relented and had a go. Literally the easiest thing in the world and you can pretty much make it up without going wrong! Wahoo! I love that kind of cooking!
This is really tasty eaten with a big scoop of greek yoghurt, a bit of milk or as a snack on it’sown. I take this to work and eat it on my break, it really is filling and keeps me going on those manic shifts.
You can totally adapt - this is basically what I tend to put in. Any seeds / nuts / fruits and flavors such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa would be fine, have a play around and work out what you like. Sometimes I add way more cocoa and make it chocolatey - or take it away altogether!
You Will Need
Almonds - a handful
Dried fruits ( I use apricots and sultanas) - as much as you like!
2TBS Coconut oil
2TBS Cocoa powder
1TBS Chia Seeds
1TBS good quality Maple Syrup
1TBS Coconut flakes
Mix everything in a big bowl, pour into a baking tray lined with baking parchment and cook in a hot oven for around 15-20 mins or until everything has crisped up!
Use the baking parchment to make a funnel and pour into a glass jar (I have a thing for glass jars) or a tupperware and Keep sealed. Eat and enjoy!
