Healthy homemade granola

healthy homemade granola

When it comes to granola, I’ve always thought that making it at home was far better than consuming the store-bought stuff (like most things, I suppose).

Ready-made granola tends to be packed with sugar, unhealthy fats/oils and unnecessary ingredients. Homemade granola allows you to have full control of what you put in and how much of it you want – you are the boss here!

This recipe takes no more than 20 minutes to make and if anyone around the house is a fan of nuts and oats then most likely, you will have most of the ingredients at home!

So let’s get started….

Ingredients:

  • 200g organic oats
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 25g sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp seasame seeds
  • 2tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 55g dried fruit

Directions:

  1. Heat the coconut oil in a large pan and then add in oats, nuts, seeds, cinnamon powder and honey. Gently stir until everything is well incorporated.granola 1
  2. Cook at a medium heat for about 8-10 minutes or until the oats are golden brown in colour.granola 2
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool on a baking paper.granola 3
  4. Once cool, stir in the dried fruit and store in an airtight container.granola 4

Tip: Once you get the swing of things, you can switch up the nuts and add your favourite seeds – make it your own! Serve with Greek yogurt or in a smoothie bowl, enjoy 🙂
