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….
- 200g organic oats
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 25g sunflower seeds
- 3 tbsp seasame seeds
- 2tbsp cinnamon powder
- 2 tbsp honey
- 55g dried fruit
- 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.
- Cook at a medium heat for about 8-10 minutes or until the oats are golden brown in colour.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool on a baking paper.
- Once cool, stir in the dried fruit and store in an airtight container.
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
