Serving suggestion: granola with chopped banana, plantbased milk, coconut yoghurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon
Granola is great isn't it? It makes a great snack/breakfast in itself as well as being really yummy to sprinkle on porridge/fruit/ toast.
Also, between you and me... I think a lot of Granolas out there are way overpriced for what they are. You can make something equally as delicious at home!
Right my lovelies, well here's the recipe:
Makes approx. 3-4 portions - so double up on the recipe if you would like more!
You will need:
2 cups of jumbo oats
3/4 cup of brazil nuts
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1 tbsp of sesame seeds
2 tbsp of coconut oil
2 tbsp of sweetner e.g coconut syrup / maple syrup/ agave
1/2 tsp of salt
3 tsp of cacao
-1 large pan
-1 baking tray
-1 mixing spoon/spatula
-1 chopping board
-Preheat oven to 180c or equivalent
-Start by roughly chopping up the brazil nuts and placing to the side
-Then melt the coconut oil on low heat in the pan
-Next, spoon in the sweetener and mix into the melted oil
-Then add in the oats, seeds, salt, cacao and chopped brazil nuts mix well until
-Now line the baking tray with parchment paper (you can reuse this so don't throw it away) and spread the mixture onto the tray
-Press down on the mix with the back of the spoon to make sure it is tightly compacted, I also pull up the sides of the baking paper to make sure of this and fold the sides in to make a sort of parcel (see photo below)
-Finally, bake in the oven for around 20-25 minutes
*check at 20 minutes to see how it's getting on- you want it looking golden but not too dark/burnt- it will continue to harden and go crunchy outside of the oven*
-Remove from the oven, allow to cool and then break up the pieces
-It should crumble nicely- it is now ready to enjoy!
-Store in an airtight jar for up to 2 weeks (approx.)
